Day Five: “Do the Math”

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV) - Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. 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.

Paul’s encouragement to “think about such things” is more than mere cognitive acknowledgement. It is to “reckon” or to take into account - like making a calculation.

Today, let’s recall and take into account what the Lord has done in your life. Write down in your journal some of the major things of how God has intervened in your life. Even in the small things, acknowledge the Lord. As you recount, thank the Lord and let’s put into practice the lessons that we have learned. For example, if you experienced healing, then put into practice trusting the Lord for your continued health. If you experienced victory over a particular sin, then reapply the right thinking and actions that followed, etc.

Let’s worship to this song: Whatever Is True by Brian Doerksen, Vineyard

Whatever is true

Whatever is right

Whatever is pure

Whatever is lovely

We will fix our thoughts on these things

Jesus You’re true

Jesus You’re right

Jesus You’re pure

You are lovely

We will fix our thoughts on You

Jesus (Jesus)

Who is like You (who is like You)

Jesus (Jesus)

Who is like You (who is like You)

Who is like You
