Phil 4:13 has always been a favorite scripture growing up but as I became wise enough to read for my own understanding, I found the versus preceding it to add so much more power. We often praise God when we accomplish or receive things. It’s not common for us to praise Him for our shortcomings or things we didn’t receive. However, to be blessed is to have God’s favor and protection - which may include protection from our own wants and desires.
I can honestly say that I am where I am today because I came to understand that pursuing things “with” Him in mind is NOT the same thing as pursuing things “through” Him. See, when you’re going though Him, starving is beautiful.
I, too, have learned the secret. 🌹✊🏾
