Application for Fighter Verse For June 8 and 9

===

Philippians 4:11-13

I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

===

I’m guessing that most people reading this post have not experienced being brought low (in terms of poverty and persecution) that Paul did. So we have not been ‘brought low’ in those kinds of situations.

But I’m also guessing that most of us have experienced being discontent. The sobering thought is this: when we say, “I’m not content with my situation”, we’re also saying “God is wrong to put me in this situation”.

Is that you want to be saying? Or do we want to be the person who says, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me. And included in ‘all things’ is: Having a headache that won’t go away, or not having a good enough job, or not having enough money to go to that vacation spot that we want to go to, or not getting the girlfriend we’d like.

We can experience joy and trust in God in all of these (and all other) circumstances. Do you?
