“I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” Philippians 4:11.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
If you truly know Me as I AM you will be in a place of no regrets and a place of no anxiety. Then, with My apostle Paul you can say, “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am in.” Philippians 4:11.
How can this happen for you? Reliance. It is when you know you have a healer, a provider, a deliverer, a protector, a Good Shepherd, Father, and One who can do all things who strengthens you. It is when you know and believe that I took away all your sins, guilt and shame. It is when you know and believe in the love I have for you.
But above all, when you have a need, no matter what it is or has to do with, i.e., when you need a miracle of healing, provision, or of whatever nature, it is not only knowing I am able to do it but knowing that I will. That removes all the fear and anxiety.
The leper said to Jesus, “If you will to do so you can cure and cleanse me.” And what did Jesus say to him? “I do will it, be cured and cleansed.” He says the same to you today. All My promises are “yes” to you in Him. It is not only knowing that I am able to do it, but knowing that I will.
By His Body your were healed, by His Blood you were cleansed.
David knew I was on his side no matter what. That is key here, David’s Key. You have to know that too. I gave you Psalm 23, do you ever make it your own? “The LORD is MY Shepherd, I shall not want.” Do you believe that? It is true. You can take Me at My Word. And My Words are sweeter than honey dripping from the comb and give light in the darkness. And David sang, “I am like a weaned child on his mother’s lap, so is my soul within me.” Satisfied and safe. Comforted and at peace. Loved and cared for, yet independent in that protection. That is what your dominion authority over the works of My hands is all about. In My hands you have the dominion authority of My hands in you. And it is then you can also say with My apostle Paul, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:19.
In that same letter of Paul where you read of his contentment and source of his strength, which are likewise the same for you who by faith have joined the redeemed and are in Christ, there is the key wherein lies perfect contentment in all circumstances. Do you know of what I am speaking? My apostle Peter speaks of it in his letters too.
It is this: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7. Simply put, cast all your cares on Me because I care for you. 1 Peter 5:7. Hand your problem over to Me, put it in My hand, and let My strong hand take care of it. Once you give you the problem to Me and are ready to do whatever I show you to do you can go forward with no stress. This will give you contentment whatever the circumstances where you are at the moment. You may not see the way, but I am the Way Maker. Moses did not see a path in the sea, but I saw just how to make one. All he had to do was raise his staff and that released what was in My hand through his. Lift your hands in prayer, it is like the evening sacrifice of praise. And you enter My courts with praise. There is a way to breakthrough what binds you, David knew and so did Paul! Thanksgiving and praise. And these equal “rejoice!” And what did Paul advise you by My Holy Spirit? “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say REJOICE!” If you know nothing is impossible for Me and all things are possible for those who believe, and on top of that you know I take care of you and will take and remove your burden if you give it to Me, then you can rejoice in the midst of a shipwreck and sing in jail and come out with led by joy and peace. And you know this is true because Paul did and he was a man just like you. But what did he do? He gave you his formula: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” But to keep himself from fear and returning to the anxiety of his care, to keep himself from drawing back the care once he had cast it on Me, he goes on, for you have to deal with your thoughts. “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9. The things you have heard and seen in Him. And you saw them in Jesus. You saw them in Mary. You saw them in David. You saw them in Abraham.
Take your thoughts captive and resist all from the devil, do not give him so much as a toehold in your life. If he can infiltrate you with anxiety and fear, he can take you down. You must know you have deliverance and victory no matter what has come against you in this world. I have overcome the world and for you the victory that overcomes the world is your faith. I have made you an overcomer, a victor and more than a conqueror. Why? I have poured My Spirit into your heart and given you the anointing and the anointed one—Christ in you, your hope of glory. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you, accessible by the One Spirit at all times.
Worry is a fear of a lack of control. Worry is a fear of lack. Worry is a fear of being condemned. Worry is a fear of the evil you have done being uncovered. Adam hid under fig leaves. Perishable. I put him in the skins of a sacrificial lamb.
My strength is in you. And that is enough. It is called grace and it is My divine life flowing into you when you are attached to the vine, which is Jesus. No need to fear, in Him you are complete and ready to face anything and come out the winner. Why? In Him, I am fighting for you. With Paul you can say, “I KNOW Him in whom I have believed, and He will deliver me out of them all!”
Please understand this: No matter what foolish thing you have done, I am still your LORD and no one can take that away from you or snatch you out of My hand. I am still present as your helper. I am the one at your side. Jesus did not leave you orphans, He gave you the Paraclete from Me. Paraclete: one close beside you that makes a call as your advocate, stand-by, intercessor, consoler, comforter, counselor, helper, teacher, and guide.
I love you. If you truly know Me as I am, and have received all I have done for you in Jesus, then you will be in a place of no regrets and in a place of no anxiety, then you can say, “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” I will turn your waste places into well-watered gardens of joy.
