Philippians 4:11-13, 19

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
