Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. (Philippians 4:11 NLT)
Contentment, the quality of being contented, plays a critical role in our lives. It makes space for safeguarding. It liberates us from unforeseen nightmares and breaks the barriers of failure.
Equally for the latter, a contented Christian hardly fails or misses any opportunity. This is not to allege that he is perfect. Still, he sees the solution out of any situation before it gets out of hands because he is likely to have what it takes ahead of the time the problem comes knocking at his door. A contented Christian sees positivities irrespective of the profundity of the issue.
Pastor Tommy Barnett’s book entitled, ‘There’s a miracle in your house,’ is simply about using what you have to get what you want. A Christian only needs to prod deeper into his life or around him to see that he is powerfully equipped to overcome any situation.
For example, why is that unemployed Christian equipped with a sewing machine in her house keeps on crying and praying to God for financial breakthrough when she can make that headway through starting her self-employment business from that machine? For sure, the machine is not there to rot in a box and gather dust in her house!
As Christian, instead of looking elsewhere for solutions to our problems, why don’t we pause, turn around and search inside our self as well as in our homes for that answer?
I pray that God opens our spiritual eyes to the abundance of divine potentials lying in wait for us to utilise and also the ability of understanding the concept of contentment.
These things we pray in Jesus name,
