“I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content- whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:12-13
In a time of fear, we can have an abundance of spirit. While the world pushes us toward anxiety we can have peace. You can’t control this public health crisis, or what the stock market is going to do. However, the secret to being content isn’t in controlling those outcomes. Contentment is much more about knowing Who holds the future than what the future holds. He is faithful even though we never deserve it. Confidence is never in what we can do, but what Jesus has already done for us.
