2.1 Memorize: Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say Rejoice … Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true … honest … just … pure … lovely … of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. And those things, which ye have learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, DO, and the peace of God shall be with you.
1. What two things were split in the decade of the sixties?
2. According to Philippians 4:4-9, when is a person allowed to worry?
3. Of whom was it said that nothing they imagined to do would be beyond their reach?
4. Is there a difference in the way one reacts to perceived as opposed to real threat?
5. What two valuable possessions does God fortify when we trust in Him (Phil. 4:4-9)?
For one full week, determine to see, hear, think and say only those things that are note-worthy. In other words, put Philippians 4:4-9 into practice.
Of all the troubles, both great and small, the greatest are those that don’t happen at all!
“I am an old man and have known many troubles, but most of them have never happened!”
– Mark Twain
“Worry affects the circulation, the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system and profoundly affects the health. I have never known a man who died from overwork, but many who died from doubt”. – Dr. Charles Mayo
“There is a difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and the concerned person solves a problem”. – J. Harold Stephens
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. – Psalms 37:24
