In life, everything doesn't always go as planned. We are easily discouraged by failure and disappointment, we quickly give up when someone puts obstacles in our way. At the time he wrote his letter to the Philippians, Paul was in prison. He knows very well how we feel when an event thwarts all our plans. However, this letter filled with joy shows that he knew how to maintain absolute trust in God, in his power and his love. The circumstances in which he wrote this epistle make it all the more poignant, for they paint a portrait of a Christian facing great difficulties and terrible trials. These eight studies on the letter to the Philippians will encourage you to face your problems with the same confidence, hope, and moral strength as the apostle Paul.
