Consistency

Phil 4:11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

 

Some of us know how to praise and thank God when things are going great for us.  Some of us know how to seek God when we are going through trials.  Many of us have trouble praising, thanking and seeking God when all is just the normal, day-to-day grind.  The human spirit ha a hard time with contentment.  We think there should always be more, we should always do more and we should always have more.  Today’s life is about action and accumulation.  Paul learned how to be content regardless of what was going on in his life or even what was not going on in his life.  Paul was consistent in His walk and relation to God.  That should be our goal – consistent in our faith, our devotion, our thanks, our praises – our total relation to our God through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Each night we should review our day in retrospect to how we included God in our thoughts, words and actions.  Each morning we should give the day God has given us back to Him to be used for His glory and purpose.  This can lead to growth in our consistency.  In all things and without we are content.
