Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice!
Be glad, be well, THRIVE!
The word "rejoice" is related to the Greek word for grace— “charis”
As joy is a direct result of God’s grace
Let your forbearing spirit be known to all men.
Be satisfied with less than your due—no rights, no entitlements
A forbearing spirit is gentle, full of sweet reasonableness
The Lord is near.
Abba is at hand—close by!
He does not reign beyond the clouds, but by your side
Be anxious for nothing.
Full of care
Seeking self interests
But in everything by prayer . . .
. . . and supplication . . .
Make specific requests
. . . with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Give thanks for the pressing He has caused or allowed
Look for His thumbprint!
His perfect intent will always result in His glory and your best good!
And the peace of God which surpass all comprehension . . .
The tranquility of a soul assured of salvation
thus fearing nothing!
. . .shall guard . . .
Inwardly by the Holy Spirit at the hearts door to keep worry out
. . . your hearts . . .
. . . and your minds . . .
. . . in Christ Jesus.
By Whom you were brought into this favor!
Through Whom you are preserved in it!
In Whom you possess!
