The Prosperity of Peace

Phil. 4:10-13

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

 


If you have Peace, You have everything...

1. Peace Brings SATISFACTION but Not SOLUTION


…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances

 

 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Tim. 6:6

2. Peace Brings STABILTY but Not SAFETY


12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want

A Peaceful mind is a mind stable in times of trouble. God works in us through His

  • Word:  And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. 1Thes. 2:13
  • Prayer: by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7
  • Suffering: 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:10


3. Peace Brings SUFFICIENCY but Not SUPERIORITY

 

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
