The world is not enough.
That’s the simple truth about life.
We always want more and more and more.
But as Christians, we must learn to be content with what we have.
Discontent and dissatisfaction can lead to terrible sins.
There is hardly any sin today that is not driven by the lust for worldly things.
People steal because they want more.
Married people commit adultery because they are not satisfied with their wives or husbands.
In all things, even in difficult times, we must be content.
I have put together this powerful prayer for contentment to help you with your lust.
My God will deliver your thoughts and return peace and happiness to your life.
Prayer Bible verses for contentment
1 Timothy 6:7-8
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
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.
1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6: 8-9
But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
