RHEMA 6/27/03 TO BE CONTENT
CONFIRMATION: I found a little card when I
organized the greeting card boxes that said, “May your
blessings be many and your contentment run deep.” It was
a photo of an eagle flying above a river where a
fisherman and also a boat with two people were.
CONFIRMATION: Anna sent me an e-mail where she
used the word content when talking about hearing Him. I
was not able to go back and find it, but I remembered
when I read it that it was a confirmation to hearing the
Philippians 4:11 NKJV
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have
learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
1 Timothy 6:6 NKJV
Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:8 NKJV
And having food and clothing, with these we shall be
WORD TO PONDER LEARNING CONTENTMENT 6/27/03
Contentment is a tranquility within your heart in which
you not only appreciate your portion, but also
thoroughly utilize it. When you have your focus upon
someone else's portion, or when you are longing for your
promised portion yet to come in the future, it keeps you
from thoroughly enjoying what you do have. This is like
the horse that eats the grass on the other side of the
fence. It seems greener and sweeter, yet to continually
reach through the fence causes dissatisfied longings.
Turn around and look at what I have given you. I have
supplied a whole field of green pasture for your needs.
Enjoy what I have given you and you shall have more when
you have utilized what I have already given you.
“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content
with such things as you have. For He Himself has said,
"I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Heb 13:5-6 )
11/24/03 A gift
HEARD: Contentment. It's a gift.
Phil 4:11-12 AMP
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. 12 I know how to be abased and live
humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how
to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in
any and all circumstances the secret of facing every
situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a
sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and
being in want.
