Daily Devotional
Do you need security?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have…” (Hebrews 13:5).

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

If you want to face a new year without fear, you need to know the contentment of His provision. Discontent is a disease that breeds fear. The secret of content is not wanting what we do not have but being grateful for what we do have. Contentment is not having what we want but wanting what we have.

You say, “That’s just preacher-talk.” Well, I'll tell you this much. I wouldn’t sell the contentment I have in Jesus Christ for any price you could name. I am content in the Lord Jesus. That doesn't mean I'm satisfied with myself, but that along with the Apostle Paul I can say it gladly and surely: “I can do all things through Christ who is pouring His life into me,” and “I have learned that whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

ACTION POINT:

If you want the source of your satisfaction, your sufficiency, and your security to be steadfast, then you must find it in the Lord Jesus Christ. As the hymn “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less” says, “All other ground is sinking sand.”
