Satisfied With What We Have


     Let us be content with such things as we have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5).


     We live in a world that feeds our desire for more and more. And then we find it almost impossible to be content with anything. But this is nothing new. The book of Hebrews addressed this issue, saying, "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' " (Hebrews 13:5).


     The only remedy for hearts that "want it all" is the contentment found in the presence of the living God. He is sufficient for our needs and longings. And He alone can bring us the peace and contentment we will never find in the pursuits of this life.


     We find contentment in the wondrous grace of God. No cloud or shadow can obscure His face. When great tempations we must bear, we find the secret place of prayer.


Contentment is not getting what we want. But contentment is being satisfied with what we have.
