Being Content Whatever the Circumstances

Today, because of the situation in the world, with the Covid 19 pandemic, and other troubles in this world, many people are not content, with their lives, with their jobs, with their amount of money, with their friendships, and with other things in general. There are many Christians, who for one reason or another, can not feel content, whatever the circumstances in their live. I have myself, felt the same way of not being content, with many different circumstances, in my life. 

But if we look at Apostle Paul, especially what he says in Philippians 4:11-13, we can see, that Paul has learned something, about the circumstances in his life. Now, we remember what type of life, Apostle Paul had, after he became a Christians. That man, in comparison with many of us Christians, has been through all sorts of troubles, and lack in his life, with some beatings, lack of sleep and food, not having enough clothes, persecuted many times, nearly killed a few times, and yet, when we read what he says in Philippians 4:11-13, we see that despite of all that, he has learned a lesson. And that lesson, is absolutely and completely according to the will of God, for Apostle Paul, and for us Christians, because, obviously, he wrote about that, in the Epistle to the Philippians.

The lesson Apostle Paul had learned, was that he knew how to be content, in whatever the circumstances. Paul did not grumble, about his life, or about his lack of food and clothing, or about the lack of other things he needed. Instead, he had learned to be content, despite the circumstances. Now, that  is living by faith, and not by sight. If Apostle Paul was living by circumstances in his life, no way he was going to be content, as he said, that he was. No way! With all those horrible things happening in his life as a Christians, he would have a mental breakdown, and physical burnout. But no, he has learned to be content. 

If Paul was content not matter what happened in his life, that alone would save him, from all sorts of worries and anxiety, about lack of food, clothes and other things. He would be going to bed peacefully, and waking up peacefully, with not worries where or how he could get, food, clothes or other things he needed. Paul said that he can do all things, by him who was giving him strength. In other worlds, the reason why Paul was content always, is because he trusted that in any situation, in any needs he had, God will take care of him, and provide him not only the strength he needed, but everything else. God was providing Paul strength, in order to enable him, to pass through the lack of food, lack of clothes, lack of sleep, by the grace of God, so that he could by God’s grace and strength, endure all that lack of things, and hardships, until God provided for him, all that he needed in his life.

If we trust and believe God just as Apostle Paul did, God will provide us also, with the strength we need, to go through the lack of money, jobs, food, clothes, and other things, so that we can learn to be content, in whatever circumstances we finds ourselves in, until we receive the full provision from God, for all those things we need.

#1 Way to Stop Lack in Your Life-Mark 8

Is there a way, to stop lack of money, jobs, cars, houses, or whatever you need, in your life? There is, if you consider what the Word of God says.

God has promised to supply all our needs, according to his riches, in Christ Jesus. There are many passages in the Bible, which clearly show, that God does want to supply, all our needs, just as he did supply, all Adam and Eve needed, from the very beginning, when he created them.

The question is never if God wants to supply all our needs, but if we want to believe, that he does. God has already done, what we need, to make sure, that we have all that we need. But, there is one thing, he would not do. And that is, to force his provision of what we need, to us. Yes, he cares and provides for us, if we ask him or not, but somehow, he wants us to ask him, for what we need. That is why Jesus said, that we should ask, because if we do, we will receive.

Why does God, wants us to ask him, for what we need? Why he just does not give it to us, without us having to ask him for that? Because by our asking God for what we need, we display, our dependency on him, and our faith in him, as our provider. When we ask, we express our faith, that he will provide. We show to him, that we believe we are dependent on him, to supply our needs.

In Mark 8:2, 3, Jesus gives us the assurance, that if we chose to walk with him, follow him in our daily life, listen to him, spend time with him, he has taken all our needs, into consideration. Although he did not supply the needs of those people spending their time with him, at the very first day, he did after a few day, just because he did not them to go home hungry, and collapse on the way from hunger.

But the main reason he wanted to supply all their needs for food, was, because the were with him, and they left all their jobs, family, houses, and other things they were doing, in order to be with Jesus, listen to him, and do what he tells them to do. They were first seeking the Kingdom of God, instead of seeking first, what they will eat or drink, if they went with Jesus in a remote place, without any food.

Do you see that? They did not have food with them, and were hungry, after spending a few days with Jesus. That shows, that from the very start, they chose to go and be with Jesus in remote places, even without having what to eat or drink. They knew they will be hungry soon, but yet, they chose the Kingdom of God first, by going with Jesus, spending time with him, and listening to him, even if that meant for them, to leave their homes, their jobs, their families, and hobbies, and other staff they were going daily, in order to be with Jesus. The were looking to satisfy their spiritual hunger, even if that meant, on the expense, of being physically hungry, for a few days.

That is one of the main reasons, why Jesus wanted to feed them, and provide for them, even if meant, to do it in a miraculous way, as recorded, in Mark 8:6. Seek you first the Kingdom of God.

This will happen to you, if you do similar things, to what all those thousands of hungry people did, when they spend their time with Jesus, even on the expense, of losing weight, being without food, in a remote place.

The Secret of Eliminating Lack in Your Life-Psalm 37

Do you want to terminate and eliminate the lack of what you need in you life, the way God intended it to be? Then read on, because there are sure ways from God, of how to stop living in not enough of all you need, be it finances, car, jobs, food, clothes and other necessary things in life!

God created you with needs, so he is more than concerned to satisfy and provide for those needs, as he has promised in his Word.

All thought the Bible, be it Old Testament or New Testament, we can see our God as being the provider of all people have needed in the past. But that is not only for the past, because he has promised to provide for all his children, past, present or future!

Our God is not like some politicians, who promise us something, but fail to deliver! No, God does not waste his time and our time, with false hopes, about our needs being provided for!

Our God is never limited by our circumstances. He creates something out of nothing, just as he created the heaven and earth by his Word, out of nothing.

No mountain of lack, and not enough, is too big for our Father God in heaven, to be removed!


There are so many passages in the Bible, which show that God can provide for needs of people, where there is not even any reason to think so.

Think about the Israelis who spend 40 years in the wilderness, how God provided for all they needed, even though, they doubted that he can! He provided for thousands of people in the wilderness, without them being able to work for it, or pay for it. He fed them and provided for them, in a place, when logically, not person would think, that you can get your needs met in whatever way. That is in the wilderness.

What type of food can you get, for a few thousand people, on a daily basis, in a wilderness? Nothing! Yet God proved to them, that he will provide for them, for 40 years, daily! Not 40 days or months, no, 40 years of daily supply of all they needed, and yet, there were some, who still doubted where their next meal is going to come from.
