What would you like for someone you love? Spiritual stability is certainly a worthy desire. Consider Paul's spiritual stability throughout his four years in prison. He can still write to the Philippian church with joy. At the heart of his stability is the drive to make God look beautiful, even through suffering. Even through suffering there are moments where people are not actually suffering. The painful moments in spiritual suffering do not destroy the good ones. In relationships too--we can destroy all of the good we have because of some negative aspects. So many people are not like this. Therefore, they consider a challenge not worth the inconvenience. They won't even start. Paul learned the secret of being content. Being content is the key to spiritual stability. Christians need to believe in their hearts that they have enough. It is a secret that must be learned. Contentment is a heart issue that says, "God will give me the ability to honour Him in any situation, even if I don't have food to eat!" In this way, Christians can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
