‘For I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.’ (Philippians 4:11b)
Apostle Paul wrote this while he was a prisoner in Rome but because of his hope in God, he was able to be joyful and content all the time. I was reading this and thinking about it in the peaceful and lovely house in Koh Samui, isolated in beautiful nature.
Paul knew how to endure the turbulence of life. He knew that life is about pain but the pain is about the unleashing of the God-given potentials that are inherent in you.
There is a time for everything as the Bible says in the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1 onward. Be joyful both in good and bad times.
Apostle Paul teaches you that with God’s help, you can make the best of whatever situation you find yourself in.
Ask God to lead your spirit so that you will receive help and wisdom in your endeavors. This will empower you to trust God always.
Embrace and use all situations and you will begin to have the right thoughts and responses to each of life’s circumstances.
God is with you, in you and as you in all situations. AMEN!
