Devotional 13: Again With the Rejoicing? - Philippians 4:4-7

Hello Metro,

Welcome to our online devotional for our Philippians series. This devotional is intended to be a simple way for you to go a little deeper in our study, and to remind yourself from week to week what the Holy Spirit is illuminating to you. It would also make for a great conversation over coffee with a friend! Taking a little time just once per week to review what you heard and to read the passage over again will take God’s Word into you more deeply, or as Paul said to the Colossians, to “let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Each devotional also includes the worship song we concluded each sermon with. Click on the link to take a few minutes of private worship. May this devotional be an encouragement to you and your walk with Christ.

Devotional 13: Again With The Rejoicing? – Philippians 4:4-7

1. Read the passage slowly.

  • What stands out to you?
  • Why do you think the theme of rejoicing is repeated so much by Paul?

2. Consider

“…Philippians 4:7 is a result, a by-product, of prayer by the one in need. But prayer cannot be systematized, delegated, or outsourced. I can hire a personal trainer to coach me, but he cannot lift the weights for me. In the matter of prayer nothing short of my engagement alters my condition.” – Ramon Presson, pg. 106

3. Prayer and Praise

  • Personalize this passage in the most specific way you can.
  • Suggested Worship Song: “Sing To The Lord” Hillsong
