Descargar enseñanza en Español aquí: Estas-Satisfecho 

 

Good morning friends,

Now is the time to get your hot fresh brewed cup of coffee, your Bible and get ready to receive the Word of God.

 

Are you able to get along happily or be content in any circumstance of your life?

I know through my own life that this can be very challenging! As we face different times in our lives, or we have family problems, or marriage difficulties some times it is very hard to be happy or content.
Today let’s look at Philippians 4:11-13.
Paul knew how to be satisfied whether he had every thing he needed or when he was in need.
 

We need to learn to have the same attitude that Paul had.

And we need to have this not only for our physical needs but for our spiritual needs as well. When we are facing situations in our lives when we need God’s wisdom we must know that we can ask Him for wisdom, and then be content, and happy because He will show us the way.
 

I think the secret here is learning to draw close to Jesus, so we can have His strength.

Most times we can’t face problems alone. And we don’t half too, because our precious Jesus is right here to help us.

These verses give us a command to be content and present a model of contentment in Paul. Some times we read these verses, and we wish we were like that.
 

We know we should cultivate gratitude and express it every day to the Lord.

Being content sounds simple and easy, yet it has many elements, some seen and some not seen. But the enemy tries to lie to our minds usually telling us we can only find our real joy in other people or in material things. The problem is for us at times we believe this.
 

There is one more thing we need to do as well and that is to repent of our own discontent.

We need to learn to rely on God’s promises and Christ’s power to help us to be content. This is a decision we half to make, to be content and then we can take control of our thoughts, and declare God’s promises for our lives.
Paul could get along feeling very content because he could see life from God’s point of view.
 

He focused on what he was supposed to do, not what he felt he should have.

That is a big lesson for us to learn right there! Paul also teaches us that our priorities need to be right, and he was so thankful for every thing God gave to him.
 

Paul learned to concentrate on eternal life not on the things of this world.

Often times our desire is to want more material things is to fulfill an empty place in us. So the question is, what are you drawn to when you don’t feel happy or content?
 

How can you find real contentment? The answer is in your perspective, your priorities, and your source of power.

Contentment is a matter of the heart, a place that we find in our spirit. If you always want more, ask God to take away that desire and teach you how to be satisfied in every situation in your life.
 

He will supply all your needs, and in a way that He knows is the best for you.
