Philippians by Joyce Meyer is coming out on March 2, 2021 from Faith Words. “Paul wrote this epistle while held captive in a Roman prison. Even under the difficult circumstances of incarceration, he still found joy! What was his secret? I believe it was that he learned to think according to God’s word. If we choose to live with a positive perspective, even the worst circumstances cannot steal our joy.
Paul’s letter to the people at Philipi serves as a reminder that if we search for joy and possessions, places, or people, we will always come up short. True, lasting joy comes only through faith in Jesus Christ, living in peace, and serving others in the name of Christ. The life of joy in service lived by the Philippians is still attainable today. In her comprehensive approach, Joyce Meyer takes a deep dive into well-known and beloved verses, identifying key truths and incorporated room for personal reflection.
The final book in her biblical study series, Joyce’s Philippians provides a practical, effective study tool that will help you develop a stronger relationship with God. If you take time to examine his work, you’ll gain a greater understanding of God’s love for you and his desire that you live a joyful and fulfilling life!
Paul’s prays for the Philippians, just as all of Paul’s letters are written for us today, as well as for his primary audience during his lifetime, so are his prayers. I have learned many lessons about right and wrong ways to pray for people by studying Paul’s prayers for the churches to whom he wrote.
My Opinion: I learned a lot from this book I don’t read a lot of the Bible so being able to read these simple studies helps me understand more and I can do a personal reflection at the end of each chapter. I learn something more each day about Paul and how to grow closer to God in my life along with the bible versus the reference. I agree I need to take more time to get closer to god and read it daily.
