2-23 Application for June 10-11, 2017 :: 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.

Philippians 4:11-13

As has been previously pointed out, when we consider the encouraging statement, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me,” we should consider the context.

This passage doesn’t mean that we can choose to do any action we feel like, merely by employing the strength that God supplies.

The range of “all things” in the passage is plenty and abundance to hunger and need and what God promises here is the strength to handle both of these extremes and (where you more likely are) all places in between.

Have you considered that? Do you worry about how you will handle it if you suddenly lose everything or gain everything?

If you are saved through Jesus, God will give you the strength to face it, no matter what he puts in your path.
