Sample His Word

I Heard A Sermon -

 "Living in the Will of God"
 
 
Sometime ago I was forwarded an e-mail from one of my daughters concerning living in God’s will.  Ironically, my Sunday School lesson was based on the same scripture, Philippians 4:12.
 
TheSingleBlessing.com - His WordThe scripture revealed that Paul, a faithful Christian, was imprisoned when he wrote this particular letter to the Church at Philippi, explaining his learned contentment to enjoy life in spite of imposed circumstances.  In Paul’s letter, he explains that he had learned how to be abased - living a simple life with simple taste - as well as living life abundantly. He further explained that through God’s instruction, he had learned how to be content in any given situation - whether he was hungry or full; whether his needs were met with his cup running over; or whether he suffered because he was without the basic necessities. 
 
In other words, Paul tells us that through God’s instruction he learned that poverty can not degrade him nor does prosperity exalt him. Living in the will of God results in contentment - -regardless of your circumstances. 
 
For most of us contentment is striving to get ahead, to succeed.  It is climbing up that never-ending ladder of success. Never-ending because you will never reach your full place of contentment or the measure of success that you have self-subscribed. 
 
I have found contentment to be learned, just as Paul states in the scripture. Like Paul, whether full or hungry, prosperous or poor, I have discovered how to conduct myself by submitting to the will of God, trusting only Him.  You see, this humble acceptance to live in His will can be entered only by growth in Christ through your life experiences.  I challenge you to trust Him, to experience your life through Him, to submit to the will of God.
 
 
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
