Unfolding God’s Word – Day 4

Contentment.

To rest in God’s peace.  To know and enjoy the joy of the Lord.

To arise each morning knowing that God is in control.  Letting go of anxiety.  Of fear.

Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.  But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.  1 Timothy 6:6-10 (NLT)

Dog of Comfort

True riches can only be found in our relationship with God.  When we step outside of the boundaries of contentment with God, we end up on a path to quick destruction.  

Stay on the path that leads to godly contentment – contentment in what we have – especially a relationship with God.

Remember, the joy of the Lord is my strength.

May you find contentment today.

My Song:  He is my joy.  He is my strength.  There are holes within us that can only be filled by the joy of the Lord.  Let Him come and fill you today.

JOY
