Today's reading: Philippians 4:10-23

As Paul was out ministering and preaching the gospel, he didn't have a set paycheck coming in once a month or every two weeks like most of us. His needs were being met through the financial gifts and provision of other Christ followers. That being the case, there would be times when Paul had an abundance of funds and supplies and other times when he didn't have much at all. So what did this teach Paul? That he could be content in any situation because he was trusting in and relying on God to provide what he needed.

"I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me." (vs. 12-13)

How has God supplied your needs, both in lean times and when you've had plenty? What role does God's Word and prayer play in you being content in any situation? Tami

Tami, I can think of many times God has supplied a need in such unexpected ways.

I have put my resignation in before the there was a class action suit, I never put any interest in it since I was leaving the company. As God would have it my husband and I were running short on funds and lo and behold there was a very nice size check in the mail just at the right time even though I had not voiced or sign up for the suit!

What role does God's Word and prayer play in you being content in any situation?

It has EVERYTHING to do with God's Word and prayer! I would never be content with them!!
