Don’t Skip Philippians 4:5 On Your Way to Verses 6-7

June 30, 2009

If you’re a believer, you probably love Philippians 4:6-7.  These are the verses that tell us not to be anxious about anything but to pray about everything so that we might be guarded by God’s peace.  But do you know the sentence that precedes these verses?  If not, you should.  The preceding sentence in verse 5 lays the foundation for the anxiety-killing, prayer-encouraging, peace-filled life described in verses 6-7.

What are you waiting for?  Look up Philippians 4:5, read the last sentence of the verse, then connect it to verses 6-7.  You will have just been given a solid reason to rid yourself of anxiety through prayer.  When worry is close, there is one who is closer.
