Philippians 4:4-7

Rejoice (be delighted, pleased) in (resting within) the Lord (Christ) always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation (forbearance and consideration) be known (experientially known) unto all men. The Lord (Christ) is at hand.

Be careful (anxious)l for nothing (not one thing); but in every thing (all things) by prayer (prayers to God) and supplication (specific prayers of need) with thanksgiving let your requests (specific requests) be made known (declare) unto God.

And the peace (state of wellbeing) of God, which passeth (surpassing) all understanding (thought), shall keep (garrison or fortify) your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are TRUE (God’s word is true, the spirit of truth) , whatsoever things are HONEST (dignified: not be doubletounged: telling a different story, slanderer: accuser of other’s, sober, not greedy) , whatsoever things are JUST (righteous: the just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17)), whatsoever things are PURE (wisdom from above, what God tells you and the expectation of future good or hope of Jesus Christ’s return), whatsoever things are LOVELY (dear to you and in God’s eyes, providing pasture being a Sheppard for his sheep, lovingly guiding them), whatsoever things are of GOOD REPORT (telling of good: believing on the name of Jesus Christ, abstaining from idolatry, honoring your parents); if there be any VIRTUE, and if there be any PRAISE, think on these things

Philippians 4:10-13

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

11 Not that I speak in respect of want (being in want): for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (sufficient in oneself, needing no aid).

12 I know both how to be abased (to bring low, humble), and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all (am strong for all) things through (resting within) Christ which strengtheneth (imparteth strength) me.

Whatever state you’re in, be content
