Be Content, Whatever the Circumstances

This post was originally published on this site

Contentment comes as we listen to the Holy Spirit


I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Philippians 4:11 (NIV)

The Bible teaches we can have contentment “whatever the circumstances”, when we stay close to Jesus (Philippians 4:11 NIV).

The contentment we find in Jesus is greater than anything the world has to offer. Contentment with Jesus is a treasure beyond imagination. We need not be troubled or afraid when we look for our contentment in Jesus (John 14:27; 1 Timothy 6:6).

Contentment comes as we listen to the Holy Spirit, learning that

the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17 NIV).

We know these things to be true because Jesus told us. He wanted us to know so that we would be content in his peace (John 16:33).
