In the place where you are, if you are walking in the place by doing what the Word says.
If you are not where God wants you to be at this time in your walk with the Lord, then you should not be content.
You should be concentrating on getting out of that place and on the road called destiny.
For those who are and have been walking the road called destiny for their lives, you should be content on the level where you are before moving forward.
To be content is not telling you to be stagnant or stuck, not moving forward with the rest of your destiny.
Being content is to bring a peace and a joy to the level where you are and not pursuing unworthy desires.
Because we can reach a certain place in our walk and start
pursuing things and positions that are not a part of our destiny.
Pursuing after these things will stagnant you from moving forward in your destiny.
If you pursue these desires, they will come to past and you will have them, but when you look up, you will find yourself with worldly success and not Godly success.
Why pursuing after these things will come to past, because of two things;
One, you are using up your favor
And two, you are using principals and laws set forth in the earth by God.
Contentment keeps your mind stayed on God and the things and visions that God has for your life.
Contentment DOES NOT mean stop where you are, but keep going, you are doing good.
Philippians 4:11 KJV
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
You are doing God’s will for your life.
Being content brings a peace of mind.
Due to success and what success brings to the mindset of a person that has never been there before, you are being made aware of an eye opening experience that could make you lose your mind.
Not being content on the level where you are before you move to the next level can lead you to make wrong decisions.
Yes, you must continue to go to the next level, but be content on each level that God takes you on.
The pressure on each level is so appealing, if you are not content; you could be lead to think this is where God wants you to be.
1 Timothy 6:6 NASB
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
Godly smarts are yours also when being content.
It’s the mind of God working with you, through you and for you.
You will see things that are not the will of God for your life.
Having the mind of God you can see the next level and continue to do those things that will get you to the next step in the pursuit of God’s vision for your life.
Continue to study and put into practice those things which will make you even stronger in fighting against the temptations that could take you off the path.
Contentment is only a tool, like Jesus saying; my yoke is easy and my burdens are light.
Putting your trust in the Lord to help fight your battles takes the pressure off you and puts it solely on him.
Be content, but be not satisfied.
Why because this is not your stopping point.
It may be a resting place, but not a stopping point.
If you are satisfied where you are then God cannot use you on the level where he wants you.
He can only use you where you are, which lack completeness or perfection.
Doing what God has called you for is perfection in God’s eyes.
That’s why I am writing this to you, for I was content where I was playing it safe.
Playing it safe did not afford me any opportunity for God to use me where he wants me.
Do not let being content hold you back from moving towards the place where God can use you.
But not satisfied.
