4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, s but in everything by prayer and supplication t with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. 10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be a content. 12 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. 13I can do all things through him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:4-13 (ESV)
I’ve been meditating on this passage a lot lately. Whenever I’m troubled or anxious, I find great comfort in these promises. I find myself pitching a tent and just camping here. I read and re-read the words until they overtake my anxious thoughts.
I want you to do the same. No matter what you’re facing, it isn’t beyond God’s reach.
Camp out here a while. Revel in His promises. Let God show you the reality of your situation in Him.
