Sidekick: What Do You Need To Be Happy-Philippians 4:10-13

About This Message

I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.  I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:10-13 (NIV)

1) I MUST LEARN TO BE CONTENT

…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Philippians 4:11 (NIV)

2) MY CONTENTMENT SUPERSEDES MY CIRCUMSTANCES

For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:11-12 (NIV) 

3) CONTENTMENT COMES FROM GOD’S POWER

I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

I am ready for anything through the strengths of the one who lives within me. Philippians 4:13 (PT)

For I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power. Philippians 4:13 (TLB)

“My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him… 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
