In his letter to the city of Philippi, Paul exhorts us to, “Rejoice in the Lord always”. Then, just to make sure we get it, he repeats himself, “Rejoice!”.
He encourages us to have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and thanksgiving to let our requests be made known to God.
We can exercise trust in total dependence on Him.
Praise, worship, and conversation with God are not designed to change Him, they are designed to change us.
It is in the heart of that praise that we discover that nothing is impossible with God, and that life in the Holy Spirit is a life of peace.
This peace is our witness to a war-torn, bloody, fatigued, and depressed world.
This peace is our birthright once we completely belong to Him.
