Part 5: Forward in Thinking

Sermon Info


Philippians reminds you that in all things, God can be trusted. There is not a care, concern, struggle, or need that is out of the realm of God’s understanding, control, and provision. Yet this truth is not always the first thing you will turn to. Your human nature starts to take over and if you are not careful, all of the challenges will take up more space in your heart and mind that Jesus ever intended. Paul was content in all circumstances. Paul trusted God, no matter what was going on around him. Do you need to move forward in these areas? Will you ask God to grow you, even if just a small bit, in your understanding of what it means to truly be content in Him?


Anyone can rejoice, some of the time!
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4

Anxiety loses power in the presence of gratitude
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

Peace picks up where understanding falls short!
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

The way you think, shapes the way you act
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2

The key to contentment is not “I”, but rather “through” Him (Jesus). 
I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

Do you truly believe every need in your life can be met by Jesus? 
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
