Phillippians 4:11-13 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength
Can we be more like Paul?
Man there are so many Christians, yes Christians — walking around just bitter and secretly mad at God. Mad at God for not doing this, not doing that, not bringing them the financial increase ( But they are eating/ never hungry). Mad at God for not bringing them a spouse, Not giving them the promotion.
When are we going to say “God, you are enough.” “You are ALL I need.”
We may not have next week, or better yet- we may not have tomorrow. Yet we argue and murmuring with God for not bringing to pass all our selfish desires.
I struggled with this very thing for some time. Until God said “When will I ever be enough?”
It broke my heart to the point I cried, knowing that I’ve been secretly mad with God. Saying God you haven’t promoted me yet, God you haven’t gave me this or gave me that. He said, “But I gave you my Son”.
God may withhold tangible things from us until we stop making it our idol. That very thing that you’ve been pleading and begging God for will be the exact thing that will draw you further away from Him. If all you do now is complain and sit in discontentment about not having this or that, just think what will happen if you actually had it. You would worship that TANGIBLE thing. It will become your God.
Saints, lets get to the point where we just thank God for what He’s already done. Thank Him for waking us up in our right mind, thank Him for keeping us when we didn’t want to keep ourselves. Thank Him for the things that we know He will give us when HE wants to.
When praises go up, Blessings come down.
God can not lie. His word is true. He will supply ALL, not some.. but ALL our needs according to HIS riches and His glory. (Phillippians 4:19)
Let go of that thing, and give it to God. Let your prayer be:
“God if it’s your will for me to me to have ________, (whatever you’ve been waiting and asking for) Let thy will be done. If not, give me contentment to keep on pressing and praising you.”
Love you guys so much!
P.S: New skirt line coming soon!
To God be the glory.
