 “Learned” to be content

In this world we will have tribulations, in these times we must strive to keep our minds turned to the Lord in prayer, trust and hope. Let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid. The Creator of the universe is working on your behalf, may He give you His perfect peace.

Psalms 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

He is not moved by fear and anxiety in times of trouble because his trust is in the Lord and not in himself or in external circumstances.

Paul could say in Philippians 4:11
For I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.

How does that happen? I’m afraid I’m not there 😱

But I believe the key to contentment is realizing that God has given you in your present circumstances everything you need to remain victorious in Christ.
( 1 Corinthians 15:57 )

Or perhaps, it’s faith believing He will always cause us to triumph in Christ.
2 Corinthians 2:14

Set your mind on and let your attitude be determined by things above.
To view and evaluate everything from an eternal and heavenly perspective.

This ability does not come naturally, but can it be “learned” through dependence on Christ.
