Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. – Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
Many times you focus on the wrong things because of wordly influence. You open yourself so much so that the cares of the world creep in and make a home in your heart and mind.
You’re in need of something so you’re praying but it seems not to be coming to pass. You say to yourself, “Didn’t Jesus say ask and it shall be given?”. You complain. You covet. You lose faith. You lose hope.
Your problem is you’re focusing more on the problem than God. Your problem is you’re not letting go to let God. Your problem is you’re impatient. Your problem is you don’t know that God already knows your needs before you ask Him.
So what’s your last resort? You try to do things your way.
What is your drive? Why so passionate to possess it? Because someone you’ve seen has it. You want it. You may become greedy and envious. Why? You’re covetous.
We all have needs but as a christian, you should know that God will surely give you what you want at a set time. You don’t need to stress it or be too desirous of it. He hasn’t forgotten, he cannot forget. He’s here and he will never leave.
You have to learn how to deal in whatever situation you find yourself.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Philippians 4:11-12 (KJV)
Learn the way of contentment. Rebuke covetousness. Be happy.
Have a blessed and content week this week.
