Contentment and Success

Being contented and appreciative doesn’t mean you stop being progressive and advancing yourself.

But as you welcome the blessings of the Lord in your life, you continue to look forward to all that he has in store for you.

It may take years to realise the true promise God has for your life, as in the case of Joseph, but he never gave up on the Lord.

“As you did with Joseph, lift me up on high. In the meanwhile, shield my thoughts with your peace, comfort my soul with your love. Dry my tears. I praise and thank you for everything,”

Let us pray:

Prayer for Contentment

Father, I give all praise and glory to Your most Holy name. Help me today as I seek contentment in everything I do.

No matter what journey I have to travel, I want to be contented, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Where I fall short Abba Father, pick me up, and lead me to victory. I choose to walk with you, always.

James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

When Things Do Not Work Out

Almighty God, when things do not work out the way I want or expect, help me to be contented. May I have joy in whatever I face.

Let my light shine in the midst of adversity because I know You are the all-knowing, most powerful one, who I have chosen to be in control of my destiny.

1 Chronicles 29:13 Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Finding Peace

Father God, as I look to You, I know who You are and who I am in You. I can find peace, just loving You and praising You, even in times when I don’t feel contented.

Thank You for giving me the grace to rise above any and every situation that I face.

I pray these blessings, in the beautiful and matchless name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, SO BE IT… Amen and Amen.
