Bless Me With Contentment

If you have a choice to choose between poverty and wealth, what will you choose?

I am sure that everyone including myself will choose wealth. I am tired of being poor!

I am tired of living from pay check  to pay check! How many people feel my pain right now?

Many of you do!

But, the disadvantage of being wealthy is that your money can buy every material things that you desire so you might forget God.

Money answers everything! Or Does it really?

It is a fact that most people only remember God during trials or lack.

However, no wants want to be living in poverty and deprivation. It is not God’s desire that we live in destitution.

Poverty exists because of poor distribution of wealth, greed and illiteracy.

God’s desire for us is to be contented and to have enough to sustain us and our family, and of curse some savings. When God blesses us with wealth it is to give generously to the poor.

God, I ask you to do two things for me before I die. Don’t let me tell lies. And don’t make me too rich or too poor—give me only enough food for each day. If I have too much, I might deny that I need you, Lord. But if I am too poor, I might steal and bring shame to the name of my God. (Proverbs 30:7-9)

  1. I have been wrestling with what you have spoken about for the past few months.
    And it’s still something I am wrestling with today.
    I know He wants me to trust Him completely and to learn He is my source no matter the situation I am in right now.
    Great post

  2. I have learned over many years of living my Christian life, that when you put God first, situations will work out for Gods greater purpose however good or bad it may be, and the outcome is that He receives the glory He so deserves. It is up to us to choose to allow Him to be first in our lives and let His purposes and plans for us to play out. We just need to be patient. So that’s one of many ways we can bless God, and when we do, He will always bless us, because it gives Him pleasure when we acknowledge Him and love on Him each and every day. So, we can choose to be content no matter what, for He sees His finished product (us-His children), and he works all this out in the process of time. His time. 🙂

    For we know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

    But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

    For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:13

    For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Psalms 149:4

    A very timely lesson for us to meditate on Beverley. Thank you for sharing.

    • You have summarized the lesson on contentment very beautifully. Only when God is first in our lives and we allow Him to direct our path will we achieve contentment. Thank you also.
