1 Timothy 6:6 AMP: But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God].
My dear friend in Christ, what the scripture is saying in our text today is that serving God makes a person very rich if he is satisfied with what he has. Such a man that serves God and is satisfied, has a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God. Are you really confident that in God that you lack nothing? Do you really believe He will provide for you even when there seems to be no hope in sight?
Lack of inner confidence in God’s sufficiency has thrown many into the wanton acquisition of wealth. They have believed the lie from the devil that there is never enough money, house, cars, etc. The mindset of never enough will destroy your relationship with God. It is a direct report card to God that you don’t trust in His divine providence. The economic crunch arising from the Covid-19 pandemic has seen even believers engage in businesses they should never have done before now. But they give themselves a reason why they must do such things to earn a living.
This is the time your sense of sufficiency in God is being put to the test. When your rent is expiring and you are faced with violating God’s law just to make it. Or your loved one is sick, and you need money to pay for the bills and you are also faced with such a dilemma of standing with God or choosing the world’s system. Be careful about what you do and the decisions you make. Nothing can excuse your violation of God’s laws no matter the name you brand it. Always remind yourself that your God is all-sufficient. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: the lord is my sufficiency.
1. Heavenly Father, help me never to lose peace over what I don’t have now and be satisfied with what you have given me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
2. Please add your personal intentions.
1 Timothy 6:3-12
