Philippians 4

In his letter to the Philippians chapter 4, Paul is falling over himself as he writes. He is so overwhelmed by adoration of God that it all comes tumbling out. Rejoice, he tells us, but then he tells us again, rejoice. The Lord is near, don’t be anxious. So often Jesus gave the same message to his disciples, Don’t be afraid. My peace I give to you. Paul tells us to keep praying, there is no better way to be closer to God and be able to do His will. Time spent with God is so precious in this hurrying world. The God Paul tells us about is the God of peace; we can have the peace of God.

No wonder Paul writes with a such a quick quill pen!
