Prayer for contentment

img_20160926_131930

At times we can feel a sense of voidness, so we may seek to fill that void space inside of us. As followers of Christ we must not seek the things of this world to quench and satisfy our needs. John speaks on the love of the world in 1 John 2:15-17 saying,

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

After all, this world will leave us empty, dissatisfied and broken. Look to Jesus for any and every need because He is our Great Provider, and is the only one who can truly fulfill our every need. Only in Him will we find true contentment and joy. We want to be able to say …

“I have experienced times of need and times of abundance. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of contentment, whether I go satisfied or hungry, have plenty or nothing. I am able to do all things through the one who strengthens me.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:12-13
