Wesley's Notes for Philippians 4:6

4:6 Be anxiously careful for nothing - If men are not gentle towards you, yet neither on this, nor any other account, be careful, but pray. Carefulness and prayer cannot stand together. In every thing - Great and small. Let your requests be made known - They who by a preposterous shame or distrustful modesty, cover, stifle, or keep in their desires, as if they were either too small or too great, must be racked with care; from which they are entirely delivered, who pour them out with a free and filial confidence. To God - It is not always proper to disclose them to men. By supplication - Which is the enlarging upon and pressing our petition. With thanksgiving - The surest mark of a soul free from care, and of prayer joined with true resignation. This is always followed by peace. Peace and thanksgiving are both coupled together, #Col 3:15|.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 4:6

Php 4:6 Be careful for nothing. "In nothing be anxious" (Revised Version). The meaning is "Have no distressing anxiety about anything. "Care-ful" used to mean "full of care". Compare Mt 6:25. But in every thing. Instead of anxiety, just lay the case before God, and trust him to do all things well. Let your requests be made known unto God. Three elements enter into the appeal to God: Prayer, the outpouring of the soul; supplication, stating our wants; thanksgiving; we must always come to God, not in a complaining spirit, but with thankfulness for present mercies.

MockingBird's comment on 2014-02-24 05:58:28:

You have not because you ask not You ask only to consume it upon your own lust I am to be careful in nothing Even though my Lord already knows what I need I am to call upon him and acknowledge that I what Him involved in my life by asking Him for help I must also be ready to accept the path that He has marked out for me to go on and go in it Without His Grace I can not do the things and go the way He wantsme to go in That is why He sent His holy Spirit to comfort me and guide me into all truth Truth hurts from time to time but O the outcome is magnificent Let your requests be made known unto God

God is good he avails himself to carry our burdens He cares for us


Unknown's comment on 2014-01-10 00:46:00:

This verse means to me: When a situation comes up or something you have no control over, remember "GOD is always in control!" We have to be careful not to place ourselves in the middle of a situation and mess things up. But by humbleness and continuous prayer we can lay our concerns at the feet of the Lord and walk away knowing He has already addressed them. In due time, our request will be granted, and with this being said... We can continue to praise God ahead of time for being a Generous and Gracious and Merciful GOD!

This verse simply says to me that, God is my Procector, my Giver an Able God, Trustworthy.


Vic's comment on 2013-09-02 01:16:55:

This verse is for people (Believer of the Lord)who is having worries or fear in life. And that we are instructed to rather kneel down and ask for help to God with faith, with full confidence, believing that whatsoever we ask we shall receive.


Maria's comment on 2013-09-01 23:37:03:

I belive this saying, so far as He has called us and not that we have called Him, no matter what comes, our end is glorious.


Kasey Burt's comment on 2013-09-01 19:11:23:

I think the verse is saying that we must trust God. Our world is so chaotic right now and trust is something difficult to give in the world, but I know that God is not of this world and that His standards are far higher, His moral ethics beyond reproach, it is he that I trust with everything, there really is no where else to go.


Felix Daniel's comment on 2013-07-10 01:40:05:

this was a greate learning from the lord.


Mike's comment on 2013-04-11 10:00:35:

keep a record of prayers in your life and when you lose faith look at GODS pass record


Nwafor Eucharia's comment on 2013-03-18 03:41:23:

When praying, are you ready to be patient with God. Just listening to the voice of holy spirit for the next level!


Wendell Johnson's comment on 2012-12-05 20:26:22:

Always put GOD in every decision you make in life!!!


Tim's comment on 2012-06-29 23:13:35:

this is a wonderfully learning and caring directive from our Lord. A friend of mine would tell me after i spewed out a bunch of worries, concerns, and troubles, "tim. your doin' ok, take it easy and keep comin' back." And so i did, and so i am, and so i will be closer to my God in Christ. ty, tim p.s. my friend was not refering to religion, or even spirituality, but it transitions beautifully w/ Phil.4:6


Trent's comment on 2012-05-14 07:29:59:

I love this verse. Don't be anxious or over concerned or over 'careful' about things, but ask God for help and trust in him. Very encouraging.
