Philippians 4:12-13 - I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty

NIV I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
KJV 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.

The apostle Paul applies the strength of God both to good and bad circumstances. He is basically saying that the gospel gives him the power to process victory and defeat similarly: as under the hand of God.

How we handle our victories is also the way we handle our defeats. When our identity is in Christ and not in our achievement, success and setback are held in the same hand.

NIV It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
KJV It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

God alone is our strength. Only our faith in Him allows us to weather the storms of this life.
