Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. (KJV) (Philippians 4:11)
Could you learn to be content without a new car, iPhone, or house? If we let them, our desires begin to control us with a never ending thirst that can’t be quenched. It is a daily struggle to consistently trust that God will provide for our needs as He has promised. We can learn to be content when we rely on God’s promises daily. When you find yourself wanting something today, try practicing contentment with what you have.
