A Crumb From The Master’s Table

The Master's Table

“…I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” – Philippians 4:11

We must learn to be content. It is not natural to be content in poverty, grief, pain and suffering but spiritual contentment is a learned state of being through the grace of God.

D.L. Lawrence wrote: “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”

What the birds knows instinctively, we must learn spiritually. God has it all in control and is very much aware of where we are and in what circumstances we are in. And whether we live or whether we die, it is all to the glory of God. (Philippians 1:21)

It is only human to sometimes feel sorry for ourselves. However, we are challenged and instructed to give thanks in all things. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Praise God in whatever circumstances you are in and watch your outlook change.

Keep Looking Up!
