12 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. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. – Philippians 4:12-13 KJV
Hello family, “Il’l be satisfied when I get older, Il’l be happy when I get a Job, Il’l be happy when I get married, Il’l be satisfied when these kids are gone!” We have all said a similar phrase. But when we get to what we want we find another thing to want. When God is trying to get to see thee awesomeness right in front of us.
Paul went through it all! He learned to see what God had provided him with in each season of his life, weather in on the mouton top or in a valley he was content. You know when we get into our “Il’l be happy when….” modes we are acting just like the nation of Israel when they were in the wilderness. The complained about a lot! But all along God was dropping awesome blessings left and right, day and night! I mean think about it, what if you walked out to your car and there was God in pillar of cloud ready to lead you to your place of work that day. And then in a pillar of fire at night to lead you home. We would be bought to our knees in thankfulness. Thats what Israel had, but all they could see is what they did not have. See where God has you look at the awesome place you are at and embrace it!
Much Love & God Bless
