Out of context, Philippians 4:13 is used as a blank check promise for whatever is desired – hitting a homerun, running a marathon, scoring well on a test. But in context, it’s a verse about contentment as Paul writes that in both the good times and the bad times he has learned the secret to finding contentment – not looking for it in himself or in his circumstances, but in Jesus alone. Really, Philippians 4:13 is about God’s strength enabling us to live in contentment in whatever situation is before us – particularly the more troublesome ones.
Hence, readers are left asking: Do you believe Jesus is enough for you?
