Learning To Be Content

12 Sep

We talked Sunday about how contentment is a learned attitude (Philippians 4:11-13). Three ways that we can start this learning process are:

  1. Accepting that God owns everything.
  2. Accepting that God is in control of everything.
  3. Accepting that God will provide for all our needs.

I encourage you to begin each of the next 30 days with this prayer, as provided so eloquently by King David. Copy this and print it. Put it somewhere where you will see it throughout the day.

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. Riches and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and it is at your discretion that people are made great and given strength. (1 Chronicles 29:11-12)

Over time, as you pray this prayer, please leave any testimonies here in the comments section. This is a powerful prayer and I know it will help you develop a mindset of contentment like Paul talked about.
