for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.
Phil 4:11 b
I have been recently been convicted about contentment.
There is a situation we have been praying for for several years now.
God has not answered our prayers the way we have asked Him to.
This does not mean that He does not answer prayers just not the way we asked.
Sometimes God answers our prayers "wait" or even "no" and that can be so hard.
We live in a society that says I want it and I want it NOW.
It is so easy to trust God when you are up on the mountain and life is going easy. Sometimes though we are not on the mountain, sometimes we are down in the valley.
In the valley life don't look the same, things are harder.
If we trust God wherever we are in our lives we will know contentment weather times are easy or hard. God knows better then we do He made us and He can direct our lives better than we can.
We can find peace in Him during the HARD times because He is good and He has everything under His control.
Good times and hard times will come and go but contentment is available to all who are in Christ.
