Contentment comes when you realize that you have everything you need right now.

If you needed anything else, God would give it to you.

What a liberating thought!

So, if you are struggling with contentment at this time, the source of the problem is not the Lord. The reason is because He’s given you everything you need for this very moment. He’s given you the GRACE you need!

And, remember, the GREATEST NEED we have is the Lord and He will never leave us.

The Bible says, “…be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Heb 13:5)

    Feels like your world’s crashing down and solid ground is hard to be felt
    It feels like the walls are closing
    And then night has fallen and the sun is gone
    Your heart is dry, you need sometime to find God

    Even in the testing fire God supplies every need in your life
    And He’ll come like the morning star and wipe away your hurts, fears
    And the dark will fall and the light will shine
    It’s all alright with God here

    Lift your eyes up
    Lift your eyes up to the hills

    ~Leeland, “Lift Your Eyes Up”

    “And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.”
    Gen 22:14
