EXHORTATION FOR DAILY LIVING (Philippians 4:4-13) "Secret to Contentment"

EXHORTATION FOR DAILY LIVING (Philippians 4:4-13) "Secret to Contentment"

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

5 Let your [a]gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Meditate on These Things

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Philippian Generosity

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your[b] care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to [c]be abased, and I know how to [d]abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through [e]Christ who strengthens me.

4:5-9: How do we handle the daily pressures of life??? By (1): faith that THE LORD IS AT HAND, present with us -(v. 5); (2): refusing to worry, being ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING- (v. 6); (3): PRAYER- (v. 6); (4): THANKSGIVING...TO GOD- (v. 6); (5): meditation on that which is virtuous- (v. 8); and (6): imitating the godly- (v. 9):



4:11-13: Here is the secret of contentment: Without Christ things are impossible but with Christ all things are possible and gives us a life of peace, humility, mercy, and the greatest are love!!!

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.” ’
