I chose a special verse that speaks to us during out uncertain season, this week we are studying Character.

This week¯s notes: The Character of Contentment, Is the attitude of accepting whatever God provides.
Notes:   http://70030.netministry.com/apps/articles/default.asp?articleid=35195&columnid=3803

Contentment is the attitude of accepting whatever God provides, and being happy with it. It does not seek for gratification what is not needed, and does not seek happiness in the shallow things of life. When you are more concerned with how others are doing than how you are doing, you will be on the right track. 

Discontent, Stress, Selfishness and Unhappiness are opposites. Selfish people are never content, because they place too many barriers of desires that can never be gratified. Contentment cannot become rooted in you if you harbor distrust and stress, as the focus will be on your situation, and not who you are in Christ. Being discontent will prevent the work of God in your heart and your will.  

(Proverbs 16:9; 19:21; Romans 9:19-21; Philippians. 4: 10-13; 1 Timothy 6:6-9; Hebrews 13: 5

Questions:

  1. How does stress counteract Contentment?

  1. What issue is in your life that would improve with being more Content? 
     
  2. Think through the steps you need to take to put Contentment into action in a specific instance. Ask yourself, am I satisfied with what I have in life? Why, or why not? What do you need to do to fully realize God's sovereignty over the universe, including your life? How can you change your thinking and lifestyle to reflect God's goodness, so you can be happy just having Him in you?
