Click this link to hear an audio version of the below text narrated by SOTH member Jerry Rhinehart: https://sothrichfield.podbean.com

Philippians 4:6-7  (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Choose one or two key verses from the Scripture reading in Philippians today and do at least one of the following for your chosen verse(s).
A –  Ask questions of the text (Who, what, why, where, when)
– Emphasize certain words as you read the text over & over
I  –  In your own words (paraphrase one or more verses)
O  – Other verses in the Bible that say the same or opposite
U  – Use it; apply the truth from the text in your life

 

Lord thank you for the comfortable sense of peace that comes from being reconciled to You.  This peace keeps my heart and mind through Christ Jesus; it helps keep me from sinning under troubles, and from sinking under them. Lord help me keep a calm inward satisfaction and trust in You. Help me to abide in You and to strive to please You instead of this world. I pray that You guard and protect my heart to stray from You. Amen.
