Contentment (Part 3)

How much do you need to be content? Answer--as much as God has given you!

God has promised to care for us. Therefore, we need to rest in the assurance that He IS taking care of us. There may be seasons in our lives of plenty and seasons of little. We can learn and grow in each season.

If you have needs or even wants--pray and ask God for them. He tells us over and over againg to ask. He also promises to answer our prayers. He may say "no" or "wait", but then we know that what we were asking for was not in our best interests!

Luke 11:9-13
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him
