Bible Reading: Philippians 4:10-13
Tuesday, October 25, 2016
When we have these desires but don’t have the money to buy what we want, we feel poor. This feeling of poverty may lead us to become dissatisfied with what we have. In our Bible verses, Paul encourages us to be satisfied with what we have. “I have learned to be satisfied with what I have and with whatever happens” (verse 11b).
What we will have in heaven with God will be much better than anything we can have on earth. So we need to be satisfied with what we have now and look forward to when God will bless us in heaven.
Be like Paul today. Be satisfied and depend on Jesus to help you do whatever you need to do. — Matthew Poe
“I have learned the secret of how to live through any kind of situation...when I have everything I need or when I have nothing. Christ is the one who gives me the strength I need to do whatever I must do.” Philippians 4:11b
PRAYER: Father, I look forward to living forever with You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
