A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“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.”
What a wonderful promise this is from God.The verse is telling us don’t be covetous of what other people have.Just be content what the Lord has given you.Contentment has much more to do with what we are on the inside than what we have on the outside.If we are always wanting more we will never be satisfied.This verse also states “I will not, not leave thee, I will never, no never forsake thee.”We should never be miserable,never be despondent, no circumstances can change this promise, we should never be unhappy when we realize what God is telling us: “He will never leave us nor forsake us.”
Yet strangely we often put our security and try to find contentment in things far less reliable and secure than God Himself.
God says “Do not be afraid – I am here to help you”
