Verse – Philippians 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Reflection – Philippians 4:4-7 – You Are The Child Of The King
God is King. When you are the child of a king you are not troubled by anything. You walk around knowing you are protected and cared for. When you need something you just send a request and wait in faith and conviction that it will be fulfilled.
The difference between having a request granted by God and getting something from smaller gods or man is that with God your heart is always at peace. You do not have to walk on eggshells around him as you would around man knowing that the moment you step on their toes they may take it back from you.
Other gods may grant your request but they will take something in return, something that may be impossible for you to give up.
With God, your mind is always at peace because you can rest assured knowing that he will provide for you at the right time and he will not require giving up anything that will be difficult for you. Just like the child of the King, we must walk in gentleness and not look anxious no matter the situation we may face.
With a grateful heart and a peaceful mind, I shall walk the earth in the conviction of the Lord’s love for me.
Thank you for creating me
Thank you for making me a member of your royal family
Take all anxiety from me
Let my faith in you stay strong
Never let me depart from you
Let me trust in only you
and help me please you in all I do
