Do you struggle with contentment?

Posted on October 4, 2014 · Posted in Sanctification

The Bible says contentment is being satisfied because God is working everything together for my good and for his glory.  Philippians 4:13,  I Timothy 6:6


Yet, we often struggle with being content. Our minds continually manufacture reasons not to be content. In response the Holy Spirit says:


The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. Psalm 23:1


So this issue of contentment cannot be resolved by evaluating your circumstances. It is resolved by evaluating what you believe.
