Wesley's Notes for Philippians 4:5


4:5 Let your gentleness - Yieldingness, sweetness of temper, the result of joy in the Lord. Be known - By your whole behaviour. To all men - Good and bad, gentle and froward. Those of the roughest tempers are good natured to some, from natural sympathy and various motives; a Christian, to all. The Lord - The judge, the rewarder, the avenger. Is at hand - Standeth at the door.

    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.

    I think what the writer of this book was moved by the Spirit to write is fully captured in chapter 4.
    Am concentrate on vrs. 18, which shows a wealthy church, that is fully contented in all things, and shares all things in common with the saints that are in need. Lesson learned is that I should seek to trust God with my need, and be grateful always!!!
