Friday's Dose - 10th April 2015

Contentment Placed by God

Today's Scripture

“Each one should remain in the situation which he was in when God called him” - (1 Corinthians 7:20).

Thoughts for Today

Have you ever played the comparison game? The rules are simple: Look at what other people have or do, and then desire those things for yourself.

This so-called “game” brings discontentment and envy. The Bible teaches that we are to be content with the life God has given us (Philippians 4:11-12). This does not mean that we settle for less or stop trying to reach our goals.

Contentment is something God has designed for us. Whether we are single or married, we can achieve contentment and peace within our hearts. In order to do this, we must first discover who we are in Christ and realize what He has done for us. He has saved us from an eternal death and chosen us as His beloved children.

Do you ever compare yourself to someone you think is more spiritual? Do you think less of your prayer life when you compare it to that of a prayer warrior you admire? Do you feel inadequate to share your testimony after hearing someone else share his? God does not measure your life against the life of another.

Seek God and learn to be content with what He has provided. He is your greatest source of contentment and satisfaction.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for all You have provided to me. Help me to be a good steward of my time, talent and resources. Forgive me for coveting what another has rather than thanking You for what You have given me. I pray I will find my contentment and satisfaction in You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
