How can we rejoice in the Lord if we are anxious, nervous, and worried about life?
In Philippians 4:4 (NKJV), the apostle Paul says, "Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!”
If we are rejoicing in God, there will be no room for those negative feelings. Yes, we will be aware of the problems around us, but as we magnify our loving God, those difficulties are minimized.
Don’t be anxious
In verse 6, Paul also tells us to “be anxious for nothing.” Instead of worrying, Paul says we should pray because when we pray God gives us peace that guards our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Protect your mind
The enemy attacks us in our minds and hearts unfailingly, so we must wear the helmet of salvation and the breastplate of righteousness to overthrow all demonic influence in our lives.
And as we are wearing the helmet along with the breastplate, Paul tells us to meditate on thoughts that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy (verse 8, NIV). He encourages us to reflect on those things because they keep our minds peaceful.
Rejoicing and holy thoughts lead to a peaceful person.
Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning
