I know some people who are very sick. They are in a lot of pain. Other people have problems with money. Some people?s homes are destroyed by storms or floods. Sometimes I do not understand how these people continue to live.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul talked about many problems that he had faced. If we read 2 Corinthians 11:24-33, we can learn what these problems were ? imprisonment, beatings, shipwrecks, lack of sleep, hunger, thirst and cold. Paul faced some terrible things.
But in verse 11b of our Bible Reading, Paul says, ?I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have and with everything that happens.? Wow! Paul was satisfied, even though he experienced terrible things.
Verse 13 tells us how Paul could be satisfied. ?I can do all things through Christ, because he gives me strength.? Paul depended on Jesus to help him face his problems.
Are you facing problems? Depend on Jesus to help you be satisfied.
