The Secret

I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.
Philippians 4:12

Today's Scripture & Insight: Philippians 4:10–19

Sometimes I suspect my cat Heathcliff suffers from a bad case of FOMO (fear of missing out). When I come home with groceries, Heathcliff rushes over to inspect the contents. When I’m chopping vegetables, he stands up on his back paws peering at the produce and begging me to share. But when I actually give Heathcliff whatever’s caught his fancy, he quickly loses interest, walking away with an air of bored resentment.

But it’d be hypocritical for me to be hard on my little buddy. He reflects a bit of my own insatiable hunger for more, my assumption that “now” is never enough.

According to Paul, contentment isn’t natural—it’s learned (Philippians 4:11). On our own, we desperately pursue whatever we think will satisfy, moving on to the next thing the minute we realize it won’t. Other times, our discontent takes the form of anxiously shielding ourselves from any and all suspected threats.

Ironically, sometimes it takes experiencing what we’d feared the most in order to stumble into real joy. Having experienced much of the worst life has to offer, Paul could testify firsthand to “the secret” of true contentment (vv. 11–12)—the mysterious reality that as we lift up to God our longings for wholeness, we experience unexplainable peace (vv. 6–7), carried ever deeper into the depths of Christ’s power, beauty, and grace.

Reflect & Pray
How have you experienced mysterious peace when you least expected it? What desperate longings or fears might you need to lift up to God?

Father, help me to surrender my attempts to secure my own happiness in exchange for embracing the gift of each moment with You.

Leave me in peace!

In those days... everyone did what was right in his own eyes.There would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.
Judges 17:6; Jude 18

Leave me in peace!
Jesus Christ’s teaching in the gospels is characterised by love, grace and truth. With wisdom and moral authority He seeks to turn men’s thoughts to God so that they believe and repent.

People refused to receive Him. They insulted Him; God did not insult them. They treated Him like a fool or one possessed of a devil; God did not interfere. They took Him, judged Him and scourged Him; God withheld His anger. They nailed Him to a cross, killing Him within sight of all; God did not intervene to deliver Him.

Jesus Christ is not physically present in today’s world, but many act in the same way, just as if they were saying: “Leave us in peace!” Are you one of them? You can ignore Him, despise Him, insult Him or reject His Word, as they did then. God will not act against it. You can mock His offer of salvation, hate all Christians; it will not prevent God from lovingly beseeching you to turn to Him, regretting your past far from Him. He asks you to believe in Jesus Christ’s sacrifice to save you.

You prefer to be left in peace and also that no-one should be so insistent. However, there are times when one must be warned of danger. Perhaps that is your predicament today. God is graciously waiting for you. Do not try His patience. Tomorrow may prove too late. And, sadly, you fail to realise that you will be lost for time and eternity.

Today’s reading: Exodus 32:15-24 · Luke 13:31-35

The Word for Today

Be Careful Who You Turn To

‘Pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.’ Ecclesiastes 4:10 NIV

God never meant us to ‘fly solo’. We all need help and encouragement from time to time, but be careful who you turn to.

(1) Don’t go to someone who can’t handle your problem. By sharing your situation with them you may experience temporary relief, but what if they’re not mature enough to handle it? Jesus said, ‘If anyone causes one of these little ones… to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.’ (Matthew 18:6 NIV)

(2) It’s ok to turn to a proven friend as long as they’re spiritually mature. The Bible says, ‘A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.’ (Proverbs 17:17 NIV) But you must know they’re a true friend. Peter writes, ‘Love covers over a multitude of sins.’ (1 Peter 4:8 NIV) Someone who truly loves you will pray for you, and walk with you until you have the victory. And when you’re on the wrong path, they won’t cover up or make excuses for you—they will hold you accountable.

(3) When possible, turn to a spiritual father. Paul says, ‘You might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers.’ (1 Corinthians 4:15 NKJV) Think of a good father’s attributes. He corrects, but never condemns you. He won’t give up on you. He evaluates you based on your best qualities rather than your worst. Instead of reacting negatively to your failures, he recognises your potential and keeps on working with you. So ask God today for a spiritual father, and stay in regular communication with him.
