Bible Commentary for Philippians 4:6

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 on Philippians 4:6
    I have heard ever since I got saved that God is in control : For a long time I believed that and stood on it : Then there came a man that taught from the word of God and with scripture showed that God is not in control. God gave the earth to us : it is up to us to subdue and multiply : God gave us control over the birds of the air and fish in the sea and every creeping thing. God told us to take control Now all we have to do is ask God what needs to be done and with His direction : leadership go with what God says about that certain thing and go with God in it and He and us working together. God has already done all He is going to do about all things that are going on : All we have to do is find it in His word and act accordingly !!! Yes !!! Amen God and I are in control now !!!!

  • Ramochela on Philippians 4:6
    Our requests should be in line with the will of God.His timing is perfect.In the book of Daniel,God gave an answer to a prayer after three minutes and on another occasion after twenty one days Daniel 13 .His answer could be yes,no,or wait.One pastor told of a lady who was devastated when her relationship fell apart.She felt like it was the end of the world.However,three years later she met the pastor and told him that she was happily married and that her previous boyfriend had already been jailed twice and was abusive to his wife.She indeed thanked God for not agreeing to her previous request.God is already in your future ,trust Him because He wants the best for you.Sometimes we have to thank God for closed doors. Whatever we get from God should be used for His glory.Is it riches? use them to help the poor so that they can give glory to God.After all we are only stewards of God 's riches.We must therefore strive to imitate Christ by having His heart and mind.He died on the cross for all who accept Him as Lord and Saviour. That 's love personified.

    It is comforting to know that we can go to Jehovah God with everything. Whatever is on our minds or deeply buried in our hearts, we can confide in our Heavenly Father.
  • Patricia Davis on Philippians 4:6
    I want to thank the Lord for all that He is doing for me at this very second. His Word is food for my soul and reading the comments about this verse from all who believe is like the dessert. The sharing of personal tribulations and testimony of staying joyful throughout those times by keeping focused on Him is a testament to the power of His Word in our lives.
