Whether we are filled or hungry; clothed or unclothed; home or homeless; employed or unemployed; healthy or sick; happy or sad; and so on; let us be reminded how the Apostle Paul said:
“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]. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:12-13).
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. [IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS]: for this is the [WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU]” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
“[GIVING THANKS ALWAYS FOR ALL THINGS UNTO GOD AND THE FATHER IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (Ephesians 5:20).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
