Philippians 4:10-20

10 How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn’t have the chance to help me. 11 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. 14 Even so, you have done well to share with me in my present difficulty.

15 As you know, you Philippians were the only ones who gave me financial help when I first brought you the Good News and then traveled on from Macedonia. No other church did this. 16 Even when I was in Thessalonica you sent help more than once. 17 I don’t say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness.

18 At the moment I have all I need—and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God. 19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

20 Now all glory to God our Father forever and ever! Amen.

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: What keeps you from aligning yourself completely with God in order to advance your life into His will for you? Is it worth it? Is whatever keeps you from His will worth giving up the life He has for you and has designed for you? Is it just fear of the unknown?

Q: How can you learn to trust God? To trust him with your family, your job, your finances? Paul tells us in today’s scripture that God supplied everything he needed, when he needed it. Can you trust God for the same in your life? If you can trust him, can you let your fears go? Can you take down the walls that keep you from aligning yourself with His word? Will you allow Him to transform you in every area?
