Philippians 4.4-9

Despite the common pursuit of happiness, we live in an incredibly anxious society. Philippians 4:4-9 gives insight into two questions we may be asking as we navigate this tension we feel as we live in an anxious world that seeks happiness:

Where does joy come from?

  • Joy does not come from circumstances
  • Joy does not come from denying other emotions
  • Joy comes from God’s presence

How can we return to joy when we feel anxious?

  • Pray
  • Fill your mind with good things
  • Follow godly models
