Practice These Things

Sisters, we can rejoice and be thankful in the midst of any circumstance, as the sufficiency of Jesus both sustains and holds. Holds our hope, carry’s our burdens, and leads our prayers. When we pray with thankfulness, we are confessing Jesus as Lord of every detail. We can submit our emotions, reasonings, and plans into His Hands…knowing that His purposes are not only good, but they are BEST.

This hard place in which you perhaps find yourself is the very place in which God is giving you opportunity to look only to Him, to spend time in prayer, and to learn long-suffering, gentleness, meekness – in short, to learn the depths of the love that Christ Himself has poured out on all of us.

Elisabeth Elliot

Gals, let’s practice prayer in lieu of worry, and foster thankfulness instead of discontentment. Let’s be let our manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that we are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,” (Philippians‬ ‭1:27‬) In His strength and for His glory, let’s give God our whole hearts today…setting our minds of things above. (Col 3:2) Let’s practice these things…

His,

Verses

Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:10-13 “I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

Amen.
