“Know the Secret for Experiencing Real Joy” 2
Why is our joy, peace and happiness so quickly hindered by whatever is talking place around us, while Paul, although imprisoned, can proclaim, “rejoice in the Lord.”(Phil.3:1 NIV)? Could it be that we are not watching out for the “dogs” that he warns us about in verses 2 and 3? Those that Paul calls “dogs” are the ones who are so quick to get us to put our confidence in the “flesh”. This flesh being our achievements, appearances, efforts to create favorable circumstances.
