Who Is This Jesus

DECEMBER 21 ~ He Came to Give Contentment

Philippians 4:11-13

Not that I speak from want; for I have learned to be content in whatever cir- cumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Colossians 1:17-18

And He (Jesus) is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything.

Philippians 3:7-8

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the sur- passing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ.

Psalm 73:25-26

Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
And besides Thee, I desire nothing on earth.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

My Child,
I came to give you contentment. You will obtain this fulfillment if and only if I am the Lord of your life. When I have first place in your heart, you will not want anything else. Daily yield to Me, and I will faithfully satisfy the longings of your heart and soul.
