Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

The Gospel Changes Our Discontent Hearts
Three Kinds of People on the Contentment Spectrum:
1. “________ ______________” kind of People
Discontent people are always _________________________ on what they don’t have.
The first _________ was when Satan convinced Adam and Eve they couldn’t live without the one thing God had told them they couldn’t have.
HERE’S YOUR PROBLEM: you are only one _____________ away from being discontent again.
2. “____________ _____________” kind of People
“In Stoic philosophy, autarkes (“content”) described a person who accepted impassively whatever came. Circumstances that he could not change were regarded as the will of God, and fretting was useless. This philosophy fostered a self-sufficiency in which all the resources for coping with life were located within man himself.” -Expositors 154
3. “___________ __________” type of People
The child of God CAN DO what God has called them to do
regardless of their circumstances through the One who
____________________________ empowers them!
The child of God’s __________________________ comes
from who they are in Christ, not from what they don’t have.
