MORNINGTIME 3823 

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. Philippians 4:12-13. How does Paul know how to be abased and abound? To be full, and suffer need? It is all a Work of the Holy Spirit to bring Paul into each of these places in Life to Bless, and to Be Blessed, by the people, places, situations and circumstances around him. He can be made financially rich that he can minister Christ to "like minded" rich men that they can know that money isn't the answer, Christ is, AND IT'S ALL HIS MONEY ANYWAY. Paul can be made poverty stricken to know and understand how to minister Christ as The Source for and of, Everything. Paul can sit on the roadside homeless and hungry with the rest of the homeless and hungry as they hear about Christ and all His Provisions. It's a case of, "Been there, done that, I've got the T-shirt. I KNOW where you're at because I too have been there". Paul ran the gamut of all these stations in Life to be allowed to Minister to all people from all walks of Life. Maybe your station is one of poverty, or with many riches, of much hunger and thirst, or of many provisions in the kitchen cabinet. Whether you have "tasted" of only one, or many, of these places, the Holy Spirit will direct your steps into the Best Way to draw you into CHRISTLIKENESS, and those around you TO Christ. As a Christian, you'll have your eye on the souls of men, with no concern of your "station" in Life. Christ is First and Only, everything else is back there, somewhere. Wherever you are, wherever the Holy Spirit has placed you, grab ahold with both hands and run with it with everything in you to fulfill your Mission in this Life in Christ. The Holy Spirit Will Keep us safe IN CHRIST, the body, it may "take a hit" now and then. Don't worry about it, it's going to drop off someday, and you WILL, Be Blessed.
