CONTENTMENT-2

CONTENTMENT-2
Esther 2:15 “Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.”

…From yesterday…

Beloved, you don’t need more than what your trainer has given you. His advice is sufficient for your enthronement.

Esther didn’t ask for more than what she was given and she won the king’s favour. When you’re contented with what you’re given, kings and nobles bow to you. Contentment doesn’t mean you should not dream bigger dreams, it simply means you’re happy and appreciative of what you have now, giving thanks to God while trusting Him for the next miracle.

A discontented man is never appreciative. When you meet a man that grumbles and murmur a lot, you have met a discontented man. They are usually ingrates who always believe what God or fellow men does for them is not enough.

Many of us suffer from this syndrome because perhaps your attention has never been drawn to it. Each time you’re sad because of what another has that you’re yet to have, you’re under the influence of this spirit. When you cannot rejoice with a colleague who has just been promoted you have this problem.

The operation of this spirit is very subtle and we must put ourselves under great discipline in order to break free from its fangs. I’ve met people who are only happy when they are the only ones blessed. Once others receive the same thing, the so-called happiness disappear, that is a typical manifestation of the spirit of discontentment.

Hear this:

1 Timothy 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”

Esther probably knew this verse of scripture by inspiration. This lady was satisfied with what she was given and it became a great gain for her.

Develop the spirit of contentment, thank God for where you are and what He has given you and He will sure do more!

Love you BiG
