People's Bible Notes for Philippians 4:4


Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Compare Php 3:1. That a prisoner, soon to be tried for his life, should not only rejoice but bid others to rejoice, shows the power of the gospel to comfort one who has made Christ all in all.

    I find it interesting that in 4:6 the word "careful" is replaced in my bible (NKJV) with "anxious". "Anxious" explains it to me better than "careful". I didn't understand the usage of "careful" in this context.

    We should think on whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise.

    Phil 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Father this so speaks to me. Thank you for being there for me Lord even in the hardest times of my life, especially when I feel that I am weak. Father, right now I just ask that you give me the strength to be strong in your word and to take away the desires of my Heart and replace them with your desires. In Jesus name I pray Amen!

    Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Paul wanted the Church to do the things that he did. That's why Paul said follow me.

    I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Well said, I am retiring and will continue to believe on the Word of God forever. This is therapy for my soul, and always remember when we stand with Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior we are more than conquerors. "Will not fall for anything." Pray and believe on the Word, Jesus will not fail us. Amen!
