Be content

Philippians 4:11b: For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

For a long time I had a problem with the verse. I felt maybe it wasn't applicable to me; no one else was going through the very hard stuff I was. I thought maybe when I have more money or nicer things, THEN I'll be content. But I realize now that I was so wrong. Paul says"in whatever state I am" that means rich or poor, sick or healthy, we are to be content. God never promised us life would be easy once were saved but He DID promise He will ALWAYS be with us.
