Trust & Obey

A while back I did a message about a lie that Satan tells Christians “God will never put more on you than you can handle.”  My premise was that it is never about what we can handle, but about what HE can handle.  I recently revisited this message for my own sake.  Have you ever had a time where you said something to someone else, and then had to revisit it because YOU needed to hear it?  The main point of my message was this “God gives us the IMPOSSIBLE to TRUST HIM for the INCREDIBLE.”  That is where I am right now.  That is where our family is right now.  We’re not quite sure of the future or where it will lead us but we know this… God is faithful, and He CAN BE TRUSTED!

I have been leaning into this scripture lately:

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”   Philippians 4:11-13

The question I have been asking myself is this:  am I content with Christ?  If we have little or a lot, if we have a job or no job…  are we content?  can we do all of this through Christ who gives us the strength to do it?  That is my prayer.
