“I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.” Philippians 4:12Text — Philippians 4:11-13
Change is one thing that is constant in life. Today, one may be at the mountain top and tomorrow the Isame person may be down at the valley. Life throws different things at us such as obstacles/opportunities, friends/foes, wealth/want, poverty/prosperity. But the Bible says “nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Like Paul the apostle, when things are good, we bless God and when things are not working the way we want them, we adjust. We endure so that we can move on.
Our ability to endure gives us courage during challenges and strength for the tough moments. The best only comes to those who don’t give up. Remember “If thou faint in the days of adversity; thy strength is small”.
Whatever the season, wet or dry, make up your mind to stay through with the Lord and He will surely bring you out.
2 Timothy 2:1-3
