"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
Colossians 3:15

Early on in my walk with the Lord, many of my problems arose out of my discontentment. What I believed was a perceived need was nothing more than a carnal desire.

Instead of trusting God to provide something, I would go in debt. All that did was put me in bondage to banks and financial institutions. One of the greatest lessons I ever had was when I learned the secret of being content with what I had.

Now, when I think I need something, all I have to do is talk with the Lord about it. If I have peace and the money to purchase it, I look for the best bargain. If I have peace but not enough money, I wait until He provides it or I have the cash.

If I don’t have peace I don’t get it.

I thank God for meeting all of my real needs through Jesus Christ.
