Philippians 4:12-13 says, "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength."
This is a popular verse when it comes to competing and pushing through, but what Paul is really talking about here is CONTENTMENT.
Paul was content because he could see life from God's point of view. He focused on what he was supposed to do, not what he felt he should have. He was thankful and grateful for what he had been given and knew that every circumstance and situation he went through was a chance to display the hands and feet of Jesus.
It's easy to get caught up in comparison and competing in today's "always wanting more" culture. My prayer is that the Lord would help me see life through HIS point of view. Will you join me in praying this over your own life and heart today?
My prayer is that God uses these short devotionals to encourage and challenge you.
