Why, oh why do we find it so hard to be content
Though we look around and see that our time has been spent
Broken into fragments, justified by strangers?
A heart of discontent unknowingly running after danger.
“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for being You. You are steadfast You are loyal and faithful. You are loving. You are our refuge in our times of need and trouble. When even the world is against us, we can be content because it first came against You. Lift us up above those who seek to come against us and lead us astray. I declare now that our table is being prepared because Your Word declares it, in the presence of our enemies. We thank You Lord.
In the name of Jesus I pray,
