I’d be lying if I told you that I’ve ever gone to bed hungry but I’d also be lying if I told you that I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Let me correct it, it was my destiny to live like one who slept in gold dust but you know what spiritual ignorance does to you? Satan steals your birth right from you until you gain light from God, and then, you learn to step into your destiny and walk, live and thrive in it.

In my Four (4) decades on earth thus far, life has swung me in so many vigorous directions but God did not allow ANY of them, however ignorant I was, to be the end of me. By no merit, He just loves me too much to watch me break no matter how bent the storms made me.

It was one of those “taking an inventory of my life” moments that the Lord directed me to Apostle Paul’s message to the Philippians;

“I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need. I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] ” – Philippians 4:12-13 AMP.

The secret that my Jesus has taught me in facing life is to be content in any and every circumstance I find myself in. Not complacent, but content – have that extraordinary peace no matter what storms or chaos come my way. Stay grounded on the word and power of God, which I have been a recipient of. To not be moved, shaken or persuaded because I know who is my ‘Abba’ (The Aramaic term abba (אבא, Hebrew: אב (av), “father”) and anchor. I challenge you this week to give it a try and start your journey of finding confident peace with God. To have an experiential understanding when He said that “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” – Revelations 22:13 KJV.
