“I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need” (Philippians 4:12).
For the purpose of selling books, many popular authors would have you believe they have uncovered veiled messages or hidden codes within the pages of scripture. Such deception, however, does not represent a Heavenly Father that has labored to reveal and make himself known. If there is one secret in the life of faith it is learning to be content in whatever circumstances we might find ourselves. The highs and lows of ever-changing circumstances become the constant reminder of God’s faithful presence and provision in all things.
