Verse of the day.
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
How abounding and far-reaching are the promises of God towards His beloved ones. The irrefutability of His promises borrows credence from the irrefutability of His Word. This, therefore, is the assurance that we have, that God who has promised is able also to fulfill what He has promised.
Hence, His promise to never leave or forsake us is a call for us to live in utmost trust in Him, as a little child trusts his/her father. This is the life of the believer: a life of no comparisons to another, a life of focus on our individual journeys, and of trusting God without inhibitions; a life to live content with what we have.
The LORD recognizes how difficult it is to be content with your little when your peers are obviously doing better; He recognizes the difficulties you would have to face in focusing on the individual journeys and experiences He’ll bring you through; He recognizes the incessant reproaches the enemy will throw at you as you journey with Him; this is why He offers us strength, a lifeline to hold on to in such moments – the knowledge that He will never leave nor forsake us.
It is one thing to know in our minds that Jesus will never leave us, it is yet another for this knowledge to be translated into true experiences. Intimate fellowship with Christ helps us experience this knowledge. It is the key that unlocks the door of trust in the all-sufficient One, for it helps us behold Christ with unveiled faces, and beholding Him helps us see Him as He really is. Such sight can only cause us to love and trust Him more.
Only through this can we live a life of contentment, knowing fully well that Christ is more than enough.Intimate fellowship with Christ is the key that unlocks the door of trust in Him; for it helps us behold Him with unveiled faces, and beholding Him helps us see Him as He really is.

Help me, Father, to dwell in intimate fellowship with You, that I may come to fully trust You and know that You are more than enough for me.
