Manna For Today: Thursday, August 18, 2016
Philippians 4:11 – Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content…
When we stop learning, we start losing. Our Heavenly Father is in a constant state of using everything in our lives to teach us something. The Bible is replete with instruction, wisdom and illustrative experiences for the believer. We never graduate from the “University of Life.” We were born into a continuing education process.
It is only when we embrace learning that we can do the work of being what God has called us to be. Much of what we are as believer is behavior-related. Scripture encourages us that “…godliness with contentment is great gain.” There is a significant behavior-related content in that text.
Today, be sensitive to opportunities to learn as God uses these opportunities to teach you in every detail of your lives. The secret of finding these ‘classrooms’ is to quiet yourself; God will not compete with the noise we allow in our lives. The heart and mind that enroll in these ‘classes’ are the ones not enrolled in any other.
Peace and blessings!
