Today’s Encouragement is Philippians 4:9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Practice these things –
Friends, our lives are our decision… we choose daily how we will live. In this series on Philippians 4 we’ve been counseled to choose to Rejoice and fix our minds on His purity and praiseworthiness, to choose to reject fear and anxiety and instead present our prayers to God with trust and thankfulness. These are what we are to practice… and then…
The Peace of God will be with us.
I’m ready for that! How about you?
Friends these are not a magic formula to Peace… but rather wise and considered counsel which when applied to our lives, as a practice… will result in greater and greater Peace. God’s Peace is available to us, because we’re His beloved, chosen children. He desires us to know His Peace. So, we have these instructions, which, as we choose to follow them… lead us to His Perfect Peace… which is beyond all understanding…
Lord may we do so… may we listen to the counsel of Paul as he provides these steps we can follow to grow closer to You and to Your Peace. Help us Lord, we need Your help to enter Your Peace.
He is our Peace
