Contentment is Great Gain

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11
Are you content in any situation? Or do you waver under stressful situations? When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior he always becomes our Peace and Strength. We should not worry about whether we are rich or poor, healthy or weak, for we are already blessed already from the Gift of life God has giving us
We need to learn in all situations to stay in Peace and Let God fight for us.
(Exodus 14:14) “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
When we are under attack by our Enemies it’s our human nature to strike back. But we need to learn to stay in Peace and Let God fight our battles.
The world might view this as weakness but we know our strength comes from The Lord and not ourselves. He has the power to spin planets and galaxies into existence; he can overcome any obstacle that you may be facing.
(Matthew 5:39) “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”
Jesus taught us to “turn the other cheek” why? Because the battle is not ours, that battle is for God. We need to learn to trust in God thru all situations. Stay in Peace and Stay Content.
Satan likes to tempt us with greed, envy, lust, ect. But we must learn we are already blessed. It’s his trap to get you off course. Don’t repay evil with evil, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
(1 Timothy 6:6) “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
When we learn to be content with what we have we gain Peace and Strength that can’t be bought. People who always need more possessions and wealth will never gain true Peace, because it will never be enough.
Many battles and struggles are due to people not being content with what God has already giving them. Whatever the world is going to throw at you, you will be able to overcome it with the Peace and Strength of Jesus Christ Amen
