Contentment

In the evening worship service last night we wrapped up a brief series on contentment. This morning I’m reminded of the familiar passage from Psalm 37:4. “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Simply put, contentment is about delighting yourself in the Lord as opposed to delighting yourself in your desires. If you are earnestly seeking the Lord and your soul thirsts for God (Psalm 63:1) and clings to God (Psalm 63:8) your desires will be God shaped and God pleasing. And the outcome for the one who delights in the Lord is contentment and the desires of their heart.
