Day 3 · Let's pray for contentment
Updated: Aug 16, 2021
👑It is sometimes easy to fall into the trap of thinking we need to achieve something or get something to be truly content with our lives. We may even allow others to dictate what success means. Today, why don’t we ask God to show us the way to true contentment?
🤓Bible text of the day: Philippians 4:11-13; Matthew 6:33
📖Read the Bible text of the day,
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:11-13, NLT)
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33, NKJV)
