God calls us to gaze at Him in prayer and only glance at our problems. If we reverse the two, we can allow circumstances to dictate our view of God, we can take our sins lightly and we can be deceived by Satan. We should approach God with humility, listening and surrendering to His will.

Scripture: Matthew 14:25-33, Psalm 66:6-18, Proverbs 3:5-6, Philippians 3:10-11, Galatians 4:19
This study of Paul's letter to the church at Philippi gives practical help on how to live a Spirit-filled life with joy, unity, power and obedience. Though Paul was in chains, he was greatly encouraged by the support of the Philippian believers.
Scripture: Philippians 1 - 4
Paul warns young Christians to be wary of legalistic pretending instead of grace-filled discipleship. Being obedient to the Holy Spirit means serving with a loving heart. We can do so and still appreciate a world of people without compromising our values or holding them in contempt.

Scripture: Philippians 3:1-14
Watch out for the "dogs" who teach works instead of faith by grace alone. We must count everything as loss for the sake of Christ, and always boast in Him.
