“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” –Philippians 4:12-13
The way to contentment and joy within the Spiritual life is through total dependence on Jesus. Self-reliance gets us nowhere in the Kingdom of God. Only His strength can sustain us in all seasons of life. In times of plenty and in times of need, we must constantly come back to the source of all life–our Father.
