From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:


“”An important aspect of balancing for a disciple is being able to order one’s priorities. A disciple should “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, (knowing that) all these things (those things needed to fulfill one’s role as a disciple) will be added to you.” It is clear that circumstances will change for a disciple and he/she will have little or no control over those changes- what they may be or when they may occur. How then does a disciple exercise discipline under these conditions? In Philippians 4: 11 – 13, Paul the Discipler says, “…for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.””
