I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Philippians 4:11
Learning to be content in all circumstance is a key to happiness. Many will say if only I had more money, if only I had a better job, if only I lived somewhere else, then I would be happy but this isn’t true. Until you learn contentment you can never be satisfied. The only way to learn true contentment is thru Jesus Christ, for he provides all we need.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12
We all have experienced good times and bad times, there have been seasons of prosperity and season of poverty. Times when we had more than enough to support our family and other times when we could barely make ends meet. But we should learn to remain the same no matter what season we are facing.
Some might say that’s easier said than done, but remember Jehovah Jireh God is our Provider. Just as Jesus told the parable about the birds, who they don’t work or worry about there provisions, because God automatically provides all they need. The same is with us, we may say or think we don’t have enough, but is that really true? Or are we not content with what we have?
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
One of the most popular scriptures, it really makes sense when you use it in the context of the other scriptures. As humans we feel a need to fix all of our own problems, but there the power of Jesus we can overcome any obstacle. There is nothing impossible for God the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is the same Spirit living inside you. Welcome the Holy Spirit to empower, comfort, and guide you.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
Our riches are in heaven and not of this world. Many blindly strive for worldly possessions, but they are all temporary and will fade away but the Kingdom of God will stand forever. Put your faith in God and he will meet all your needs in Jesus Name Amen
