The Secret of Living
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:12-13
Prosperity can often leave us feeling secluded from the world. It can leave us empty and alone. So, how is it that Paul felt so contented with God? This was a man who had been chained and left for dead. How did he claim to know the secret of being contented?
What gave this ordinary man the strength that could move mountains and the faith to heal from oppression?
Simply said, it was his faith in God.
Like Paul, our circumstances can get the better of us and leave us feeling trapped. Unlike Paul though, he didn't allow those things to bind him down. Instead, he chose to allow God to remain at his side--no matter what he faced--he allowed God to be a part of his life.
By him doing this, he was able to pull through during those difficult moments of being jailed and persecuted because of what he believed. If we simply have that kind of faith then we too will be able to get through any difficult moments of life--just because we put our trust in God alone.
