Sermon Reflections and Application

Today Pastor Brent shared with us that contentment isn't a feeling nor is it dependent on our circumstances. Instead, the source of true contentment is Jesus and in Him, we have all we need. However, the enemy of contentment is comparison or envy. Envy robs us of our joy and peace. In response to this sermon, I would encourage you to prayerfully ask the Lord to help you to apply the 3 Steps of Contentment in your life:
  1.  Realize what you have
Ask the Lord to show you what you have that comes from him and write them down. Are the answers surprising or obvious to you? Whatever the case may be- be honest and write them down.
2. Recognize that God is the source
How has the Lord been your source this past week? How are you excited to be His disciple during COVID-19? Write down your answers and ruminate on what the Lord is doing in your life RIGHT NOW. When finished thank Him for how He's been your source (if and when you are ready).
3. Rivet (or latch) your life to His purpose and mission
The Lord is an incredible planner. He who created the heavens and earth with such detail and meaning has designed you for His great purposes. He loves you more than you know!! However, we get a choice to follow or rivet our lives to His leadership. Today (if ready), prayerfully ask the Lord how He wants to align your heart and actions with His mission? Whatever the answer is, be bold and write it down. I would challenge you to share this with a friend and ask them to pray for you as you pursue following God in this area. 
Praying that God will continue to speak to you during the Wisdom Series!
