“Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:11-13
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” – 1 Timothy 6:6-12
As we walk our own individual paths in this earthly world God has foresighted us on, we must trust in the good forces surrounding us in the invisible spiritual realm. These good forces are angels in disguise that appear the most when belief is at it’s strongest point. The type of good forces that give a lasting comfort of faith; not a jolt of deceit. God purposed exactly for us to expect negative energy’s and evil forces trying to capture the Glory God has won us already. I know for one that I see myself being drained dealing with the same troubles daily but I remind myself to set my eyes on sights above.
I shouldn’t even be vibrating on a frequency that will allow me to entertain such distractions and ignorance. It’s a daily spiritual warfare that I battle trying to make sense of a world that doesn’t operate on the foundation of God’s principles; so I can’t be upset that a battle against this world may as well be a lost cause. I find myself gaining unlimited faith when I dive into the bible and God’s word. They are truly revelations that we are responsible for recognizing.
There needs to be a level of contentment within ourselves to understand the workings and mysterious ways of God. We will burn ourselves out physically and mentally without building our spiritual knowledge; knowing that knowledge comes when God says and not a second later. I find myself questioning things that happen to irk my soul but bare such little power in God’s grace. I always come to that spot of humility not realizing that the man above would never have tempted me and burdened me more than I can bear; for as long as I sought out our father in heaven. His kingdom reigns. Evil and negativity will destroy itself; so don’t follow the path of being a prisoner to this world. God’s presence is here; but he comes to us as we come to ourselves. Gratitude is definitely riches; while complaint is and will always be the real poverty.
