Philippians 4 - Key

v1

Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, [my] dearly beloved.

This time, I really noticed that this verse says to stand fast in the Lord. It's easy to get weary from battling against temptation, and from doing much serving, but when we feel that way, we should remember this chapter.

Application

v13
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

When I feel like giving up on doing what I should, I'll remember that Christ enables me and trust Him to help me repent from the sins that are behind, and then forget them and press forward toward what He wants me to do, in prayer.

v6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
