Rejoice No Matter What

Philippians 4:4–6 NIV
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
At the time...
Paul is incarcerated
Anyway, Paul is in jail and he’s…delighted. His countenance is opposite his circumstance. I wouldn’t be bright-eye
Paul’s countenance is opposite his circumstances
He’s spiritually free, but physically not
“rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, Rejoice! (mirror ).
Peter isn’t worried () even though he is jailed
The letter to the Philippians is a reinforcement of fellowship and commendation of virtues present in the Philippians.
isolation brings about a debasement- where your humbled either by a decision you made or God trying to get your attention. With God isolation is rehabilitation. It’s just you and Him…you can get completely naked. All of your crap you can let go, the control you’ve been trying to exert only to lose it more and more, you lose it all and all you can see is the real you.
