Read: Philippians 12-14
Study: Before writing the letter to the Philippians, we know that Paul was arrested in Caesarea and was in Jail for 2 years. After he wrote a personal appeal to Caesar, he was transferred to Rome. On the journey, he was in a ship wreck where he had to spend the winter in Malta. After he finally got to Rome, he was placed under house arrest for a year. Paul would have been chained, all day, to Pretorian guards who would change shifts every 4 hours. Take inspiration from the way Paul was able to find hope and trust in God even through all of his trials.
