The Secret to Contentment: “Into the Word” Week 25

Contentment is such an elusive concept sometimes.  In Philippians 4, Paul challenges us to learn to be content in all circumstances.  Easier said than done, right?

This week, as I was digging “Into the Word,” I discovered a verse that provides the secret to contentment: 

The fear of the Lord

leads to life;

    then one rests content,

untouched by trouble.

Proverbs 19:23, NIV

 I love this promise!  The “fear of the Lord” means to reverence Him, to honor Him in all that I do.  As I cultivate a worshipful life, contentment fills my soul. 

Q4U:  Do you struggle with contentment?  How does this promise impact your understanding? 

Every Monday we will be working our way through Anne Graham Lotz’s 52-week study “Into the Word.”    Hop on over to the 3dLessons4Life Blog Facebook Page to join us as we dig into God’s Word together.
