People's Bible Notes for Philippians 4:2


Php 4:2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche. Two good women of Philippi, who had apparently been estranged. Women were prominent in the founding of the Philippian church; Lydia was the first convert (Ac 16:14,15), and her house was a home of the missionaries (Ac 16:40). Observe the repetition of the word "beseech". It gives it special emphasis.

    Dear beloved, I'm praying in agreement with you that God will move to sort your mortgage issues out. Remember that 'the eternal God is your Refuge and underneath you are the everlasting Arms' (Deuteronomy 33: 27) I'm sensing God saying, 'I've got this!' Come on, praiiiise the LORD!

    Verse 6 jumped out at me this morning as I was reading I know that God doesn't put more us than we can bare, but I feel that sometimes He lets things happen to get our attention. I am going through a dark valley with our mortgage company. My prayer life wasn't what it should be and this verse as well as others may me wake up and say listen. God knows all and He just wants you to come and ask.
