Power of Contentment

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭KJV‬‬ http://bible.com/1/1th.5.16-18.kjv:

Merry Christmas to you all. On this day, let us remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. It’s not all about the gifts. Sometimes, we forget and get caught up in materialistic things and forget the reason why we celebrate this season. God has been so good to us. From January till December, he has kept us. Though some days are tougher than others, he has sought us through it all. “Not everyone is truly content with with his or her life. Often times we are unsatisfied and seek more for what we don’t have and who we are. Through scripture however, we are commanded to be content with all we have in life.” (Bible Study Tools). Let’s take a look at what Scriptures says in regards to being content. A great reminder of being content is found in Philippians 4:11-12.

12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
This is a reminder that no matter how little or small we have in life, we should always be thankful. There’s nothing wrong with worker hard to purchase something you want but when it becomes an idol in your life then that when it becomes a problem. So as this day is wrapping up, take time to reflect and write down what your’e thankful for. During this time, there are people all around the world, who don’t have the means of giving but they are still content. We must learn to have a heart of gratitude in every season, not just when we receive gifts but in those times when we have to be the givers. May God help us to be content in everything. May we be seekers and doers of his word. Remember that God loves you, he cares for you and he has a plan for your life. Stay blessed.  🙂
Devotion:

“Enoch walked with God 300 years.”
Ge 5:22 NIV

WHY JESUS CAME

Life is a journey with a definite beginning and end. And if you’re wise you’ll do what Enoch did for 300 years—he walked with God. Can you imagine how well you’d know God after spending all those years with Him? There’s nothing dull or boring about walking with God. The Psalmist says, “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence” (Ps 16:11 NIV). God made you for Himself, and only when you discover His purpose for your life will you find peace and joy. If you were to take a fish out of the ocean and place it on the beach, you’d see its scales dry up as it gasped for breath. Is that fish happy? No. If you covered it with a mountain of cash, would it be happy? No. Would an iPad, a good book, and a cool drink make it happy? No. Would a new wardrobe? No. Only one thing will make it happy: putting it back in the water. That fish will never be happy on the beach because it wasn’t made for the beach. It was made for the ocean, in the same way you were made for fellowship with God. You’ll always feel like a fish out of water—never knowing peace and joy—until you find Him. And the good news is He’s as close to you as a prayer. Once you ask Him into your heart you’ll never feel empty again. Do you know why Jesus came that first Christmas? He tells us: “So that [you] may have the full measure of my joy within” (Jn 17:13 NIV).

Greatest Love

Image

I HAVE LOVED YOU with an everlasting Love. Before time began, I knew you. For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for Love, hoping for hope. All that time I was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in My compassion arms.

When time was right, I revealed Myself to you. I lifted you out of that sea of despair and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked–exposed to the revealing Light of My Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe around you: My robe of righteousness. I sang you a Love song, whose beginning and end are veiled in eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and and harmony into your heart. Join Me in singing My song. Together we will draw others out of darkness into My marvelous Light.

Jeremiah 31:3 – The Lord appeared to us in the past saying:“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. 

Isaiah 61:10 – I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 

1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light

Show Me Your Way

Image

I AM WITH YOU, watching over you constantly. I am Emmanuel (God with you); My Presence enfolds you in radiant Love. Nothing, including the brightest blessings and the darkest trials, can separate you from Me. Some of My children find Me more readily during dark times, when difficulties force them to depend on Me. Others feel closer to Me when their lives are filled with good things. They respond with thanksgiving and praise, thus opening wide the door to My Presence.

I know precisely what you need to draw nearer to Me. Go through each day looking for what I have prepared for you. Accept every event as My hand-tailored provision for your needs. When you view your life this way, the most reasonable response is to be thankful. Do not reject any of My gifts; find Me in every situation.

Matthew 1:23; Colossians 2:6-7

Make up your mind not to put any stumbling block…in your brother’s way.”
Ro 14:13 NIV

Deal with the Stumbling Blocks (1)

If you want to win someone to Christ, there are certain stumbling blocks you may have to remove. Let’s be honest, people are turned off by religion for a lot of reasons-legitimate ones. Let’s look at some: (1) Hypocrisy. Think about the twelve disciples; one of them betrayed Jesus, one denied Him, and one doubted Him. That’s a 25 percent default rate! But the good news is, Jesus continues to love us and work with us in spite of our problems. (2) Terminology. If you grew up in church, you’re probably familiar with Bible terminology. But don’t assume everybody else is, or you’ll talk over their heads. When Jesus talked to shepherds He discussed sheep. When He talked to farmers He discussed sowing and reaping. Identify the person’s interests and spiritual needs, then use language they understand. (3) Negative emphasis. If your major emphasis is on what people can’t do, they’ll run in the opposite direction. A well-known preacher says, “I grew up understanding what our church was against, but never what it was for. Basically, we were against everything!” Smiling, he added, “We preached against smoking and drinking. We especially preached against adultery, because we believed that could lead to dancing.” Seriously, the gospel is not about what you lose when you come to Christ, but what you gain. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10 NIV). If you’re serious about winning people to Christ, you must recognize the stumbling blocks that stand in their way and try to remove them.

Leave It Up To Him

Image

When things don’t go as you would like, accept the situation immediately. If you indulge in feelings of regret, they can easily spill over the line into resentment. Remember that I am sovereign over your circumstances, and humble yourself under My mighty hand. Rejoice in what I am doing in your life, even though it is beyond your understanding.

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. In Me you have everything you need, both for this life and for the life yet to come. Don’t let the impact of the world shatter your thinking or draw you away from focusing on Me. The ultimate challenge is to keep fixing your eyes on Me, no matter what is going on around you. When I am central in your thinking, you are able to view circumstances from My perspective.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. -1 Peter 5:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” -John 14:6

“If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging.”
Ro 12:8 NLT

Encouragement—It’s a Powerful Thing

Many a man and woman who quit would have kept going if they had just received a word of encouragement from someone. Encouragement is so vital that the Scriptures rank it up there with gifts like teaching and leadership (See Ro 12:6-8). Here are two stories that illustrate the power of encouragement. Story one: Not long ago the world watched as three gray whales, icebound off Point Barrow, Alaska, floated battered and bloody, gasping for breath at a hole in the ice. The whales’ only hope was to be somehow transported five miles past the ice pack to the open sea. Rescuers began cutting a string of breathing holes about twenty yards apart in the six-inch-thick ice. For eight days they painstakingly coaxed the whales from one hole to the next, mile after mile. Along the way one of the trio vanished and was presumed dead. But finally, with the help of Russian icebreakers, the other two whales, Putu and Siku, swam to freedom. Story two: Jackie Robinson was the first black player in the U.S. to play major league baseball. While breaking baseball’s color barrier, he faced jeering crowds in every stadium. Playing one day in his home stadium in Brooklyn, he made an error and his own fans began to boo him. As he stood, humiliated, at second base, “Pee Wee” Reese came over and stood next to him. He put his arm around Robinson and they faced the crowd together. The fans grew quiet; the game continued. Robinson later said that arm around his shoulder saved his career! Encouragement—it’s a powerful thing. So who can you encourage today?

Lean On Him

Image

Thank Me in the midst of the crucible. When things seem all wrong, look for growth opportunities. Especially, look for areas where you need to let go, leaving your cares in My able hands. Do you trust Me to orchestrate your life events as I choose, or are you still trying to make things go according to your will? If you keep trying to carry out your intentions while I am leading you in another direction, you deify your desires.

Be on the lookout for what I am doing in your life. Worship Me by living close to Me, thanking Me in all circumstances.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

-1 Peter 5:6-7

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
-1 Thessalonians 5:18
