LIVE IN AUTARCHY
(Become Independent Of External Forces)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Philippians 4:10-11 AMP C “I was made very happy in the Lord that now you have revived your interest in my welfare after so long a time; you were indeed thinking of me, but you had no opportunity to show it. Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
The Greek rendering of the word “content” in our theme scripture is “autarkes,” from where the English word, “autarchy” is derived. Autarchy means you are living in economic independence from external forces; it means you’ve become self-sufficient. In 2 Corinthians 9:8 (AMPC), we see that it’s God’s will for us to walk in this level of selfsufficiency. It says, “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].”
This is so easy to accept, believe and understand, when you truly know who the Christian is: he’s one in whom Christ dwells, and Christ is everything. When you have Christ, you’re full; you’ve arrived; you have it all. But not many have come to this understanding. I came across the foregoing verse as a teenager and made up my mind to have it actuated in my life. I chose to walk in the light of it, and it’s been my life ever since.
Make up your mind to live in blessings and abundance, because it’s the life God has given to you in Christ. Refuse to allow the circumstances of life to dictate your response. Live by God’s Word. Be absolutely independent of all circumstances, such that no matter what happens, you’re always on top. You’ve become an oasis of love in a troubled world. There could be chaos everywhere, but you’re unruffled, only making progress, and moving forward. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you, for you’ve granted me all things that pertain to life and godliness; I don’t lack anything good, because the world belongs to me. I’m steadfast and unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. I’m strengthened by the Holy Spirit in my inner man, and I win all the time, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
