Philippians 4:5-7 is a study on the subject of anxiety. In its positive form, anxiety motivates us in service and draws us closer to the Lord for strength and peace. At the same time, however, if unchecked, it can also strip us of our joy and destroy us emotionally, spiritually and physically. This study of Philippians 4:5-7 takes a look at what the apostle Paul has to say about this human affliction. Here in these verses the apostle lays out a challenge, provides a solution and tells us of the promise of God for all who will apply the teaching of His word to the problem of anxiety. My prayer is that this study will be a blessing to all who struggle with anxiety.
