Resting in Contentment – 5/1/20

Stephen Jacobson

Proverbs 19:23 – “The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rest content, untouched by trouble.

  

I am constantly reminded how foolish MY way is, and that I need to re-align myself in fearing the Lord since His way is always good. Romans 8:18 writes, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” We as Christians experience hardships, but in Christ we will never experience the true trouble of eternal separation from Christ. During this present time, we are all experiencing some form of hardship with COVID-19, but God will right these difficulties. I am striving to find contentment in Christ and resting in the fact that God’s glory will be revealed to us in the end.  

Prayer Point

Pray that we maintain an eternal perspective when we start to worry about the struggles of this earth.
