The Provisions of God -4
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content. 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.
This idealistic indication of an incarcerated Paul writing the Church at Philippi gives a broad insight to a rare perspective of patience. Paul tells us not only is he grateful for their care at whatever he receives it, but he is content. The consideration of being content is major; however, the issue of being abased is often overlooked due to an unfamiliar association with the experience. To be abased means to behave in a way that belittles or degrades (someone, yourself usually). "I watched my colleagues abasing themselves before the parole board." Most of us are proud of ourselves, and this doesn't mean a lack of self-esteem but instead controlling your appearance to affect your circumstances. Paul also demonstrates his knowledge on how to abound or how to boost his strength in Jesus. Does your humility allow you to be abased and to abound?
Jehovah Tsemach, The Branch of the Lord - Isaiah 4:2; we thank You, Branch of the Lord, for all that You do for us. We praise You for teaching us to be abased and position ourselves in a place of humbleness. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who learn how to be abased and how to abound; so that, we who seek to serve You appear as the image of Your Son. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with the anointing of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
