Learning to be content in every situation

…For I have learned how to be content(satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. –Philippians 4:11

The Bible teaches us to be content no matter what our circumstances may be. The apostle Paul wrote, Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be content(satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am.

Contentment is a decision to be happy with what you already have.Unfortunately, we usually learn to be content by living disconnected lives for a long time and then finally saying, “Lord, I don’t want to live this way any longer.” But it doesn’t have to be that way.

You can choose to be content every day. This is worth more than all the material possessions you could possibly accumulate in a lifetime.

Paul made this clear when he wrote in 1 Timothy 6:6 that godliness accompanied with contentment(that contentment which is a sense of inward sufficiency) is great and abundant again.

What is sure to make us happy? Choosing contentment in the Lord, every day. Saying to God, “Lord, I only want what You want me to have,” is the only way to have real peace and lasting happiness.
