“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 4:4-7 -> me: What a great word for the last several days! This is a set of verses to LIVE during this time…and any time for that matter. ‘Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS’ – What have I to fear from this world when there is nothing it can take from me that is more precious than what the Lord gives and has waiting for me. ‘Let your reasonableness be known’ – Strive for this impression…”You know that guy Ben, yeah, that’s the one…you notice how he never seems to get rattled or surprised by what life throws at him?” How do I become perceived this way? I approach everything with requests to God, with thankfulness in my heart; and then, the unexplainable peace of God will guard my mind in Christ Jesus, His Son. Here I sit on Good Friday, not thinking about COVID, no; I am thinking about my Lord and Savior giving His life to save mine…and the HOPE I now have knowing He will then conquer death on Sunday morning, paving the way for my eternal life with Him. Nothing else can compete with that.
