Philppians 4:4

Philppians 4:4

Paul exhorts us to joy and holy delight in God: REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS; I REPEAT: REJOICE. All our joy must culminate in God; and our thoughts of God must be pleasant thoughts. "... my cares (painful and distressing thoughts) multiply within me, your consolations cheer soul" (Psalms 94:19), and "... may my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord" (Psalms 104:34 ). Note: It is our duty and privilege to rejoice in God always; at all times and under all conditions; even when we suffer for Him or are afflicted for Him. We should not think the worst of Him because of the sufferings we undergo in His service. There is enough in God to supply us with joy in the worst circumstances on earth. He had said this before (Phil. 3:1): "Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord" Here he repeats what he had said previously. Joy in God is a duty of great consequence in the Christian life; and Christians need to be reminded of this. If honest people do not constantly party, the problem is with them.
