Be Content

 

Be content!  Yes, be even satisfied and appreciative of the provision you receive from the Lord.  Do not look upon the provision of others and be envious.  Neither look upon the provision brought forth through the world and be tempted.

Be content with what you have, but at the same time do not limit the Lord by not expecting to receive all that He promised you to have in His word.  From this day forth look unto the Lord for He is good and His mercies are from everlasting to everlasting!

This is the day the Lord has made and we will rejoice in the freedom that we have and be thankful for all we have.  For He is the King and He is in charge of everything.  Nothing can take place without the Lord allowing it.

So rest in the faithfulness of the Lord for He takes care of His own people.  Like a hen that gathers her chicks under her wing He gathers you together.  He desires peace and unity among His people so He can gather them to keep them in safety.  If you are contentious among yourselves concerning the Word and allow the enemy to divide you, then you will become like scattered sheep without a Shepherd becoming an open target for the wolf to devour you.

First he [Satan] will come to entice you.  Then he will bait you with false doctrine.  He will destroy your testimony after you walk in his lies.  Then he will steal from you all God’s promises made to you, and eventually you will be in poverty, become sick from disease, and die.

So do not be tempted.  Be content with what you have at present, and believe for the fullness of provision from the Father’s hand.


 

Yolanda BallardYolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet.  I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow.  Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
