Who Are You Talking To?

Who Are You Talking To?

August 18, 2013 | Rev. Doug Hucke

We cam experience joy even in difficult times. Both the Philippi congregation and Paul were experiencing tough times when Paul wrote this letter on joy from prison. To experience joy and banish habitual worry, we must recognize that God is the master of the universe, not us, and shift our troubled conversation with ourselves to conversation with God through prayer.

Series Information

Happiness is not the same as joy happiness is fleeting and depends on circumstances. The Bible does not promise happiness, it promises joy, which comes from God, not circumstances. Joy is characterized by deep gratitude for who God is and what he has done, and it transcends pain or grief or other suffering.
