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.

End of the Rope Financially? God Will Give You One without End

Are you at the end of the rope financially? God will give you another one, without end!

If God cares for every single animal, there is in the world, to feed them, would he not care for you, who are from the chosen generation, and from a royal priesthood? You are made in his image, and no animal is. Would God not take care of your financial situation, if you are the crown of his creation?

Do not be like the disciples of Jesus, who could not see the Provider of everything, right there with them, and were asking, how they could feed the thousands of people, in a isolated place, with no money to buy food for everyone, after Jesus told them to give those thousands of people food, before he multiplied the few fish and bread by a miracle.

Think about the Israelite during the time, they were in the wilderness. God fed them with the bread from heaven, the Manna, and provided them, with water from the rock, as recorded in Psalm 105:40, 41. He cared for them, for 40 years, while they were in the wilderness, to provide for their needs. They did not have income in the wilderness for 40 years, because what could they work, in a wilderness. They did not have social benefits, to rely on. Yet, God miraculously, took care of them.

And now, if you are a born again Christian, you are under a better covenant, because we live under the New Testament now. By accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord, you are given the status of being a child of the living God.

I want you to look again, at Hebrew 13:5, even if you know that verse, because, that is one of the clear promises of God Almighty for you, and about the amount of money you have. It says, that you should be content with the amount of money you have.

Now, you may be saying that you have very little money. If that is the case, then it does not matter. It does not matter really how much money you have now, and the reason for that is found in Hebrews 13:5. That is God talking to you personally, regardless of how much money you have now, in your pocket, bank account or wallet!

God says to you very clearly, in Hebrews 13:5, that no matter how much money you have now, he will not leave you or forsake you, but that he is your helper! Do you see that? God does not care how much money you have now, because he is saying, that he will not leave you in need, and that he will not forget that you need money!

That is what it is saying to you! God says in that verse, that he will not leave you in a situation, where you will be a needy person, lacking money or what you need! That is his promise for you personally! Take it, believe it, confess it, receive it by faith, and wait, letting him fulfill his Word, and the promise in his Word, because his Word never fails, but will accomplish what God has spoken it for!

#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.

Instant Boost to Your Faith for Abundant Provision-Psalm 23

How well you know your Shepherd, will determine how much of green pastures you see around in your life.

The less we know Jesus Christ our good Shepherd, the more dry grass and no pastures we will find around us.

God wants to lead you to a green pastures, if you are his sheep.
God always wanted to give you green pastures, instead of a dry morsel.

From the very beginning, God gave Adam and Eve a green pastures, and more, the Paradise.

God hates lack in your life, as much as you do. Just read Psalm 23:1.

How to Stop Worrying about Your Needs-Matthew 6

God has warned us, not to worry about what we shall eat, or what we shall drink!
‚Äč
You do not need to worry anymore, how you will get money for what you need, be it food, clothes, rent, cars, and other things!

The fact that Jesus said that you should not worry about how you will get what you need, shows, that God is really concerned about your needs being met!

But what is worrying about your needs being met?

Well, it is the constant thinking, reasoning and calculating in your mind, of how and from where is the best place for you, to find what you need. It is all based on logic, and not on faith. Faith does not calculate, reason, or estimate! It just trusts and believes the truth, and the Word of God is truth.
