Contentment Has To Be Learned

Scripture tells us that no matter what our circumstances might be, we should be content.  That statement might appear to be impossible given that some people are dealing with poverty, sickness, divorce, joblessness and even death.  Those kinds of situations can easily rob us of our joy.  Yet, Believers do have the ability to find contentment in life because God is the strength of their heart (Psalm 73:26).

Contentment is the secret of living a successful life, but a life without God cannot, and will not, offer the level of peace that every one seeks.  Over the course of your journey with God, you will find that God is with you at all times.  Thus, you will never feel alone  Repeatedly, you will find that God will make a way for you when there seems to be no way.  God will guide you and perfect the things that concern you, so much so that your love for Him will evolve into the most precious thing in your life.  You will find that His mercies are new every morning.  Therefore, you will have hope in the midst of the storms that come your way.

Contentment is not based on material possessions or on any relationship.  Contentment is an attitude of the heart that causes you to live a life in humility and thankfulness for every blessing God has bestowed upon you.  You realize that every good and perfect gift comes from above and because of the Lord Jesus Christ, the greatest gift is the gift of salvation and the pardon of your sins.  That fullness of that gift will be given to you when your transition from this life into eternal life with your heavenly Father.  Salvation is available to every one and the best part of salvation is it is free.  You need only to confess the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God and believe that He died and rose again and He will give you the power of the Spirit of God to be an overcomer and not be overcome by worldly values.

Contentment is learned over a lifetime.  It is a skill that will serve you well, and it will show the world that you possess something powerful that they do not.  Contentment is real and worth achieving. So learn it and put it into practice.
