I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 [NKJV]
It is true that life challenges can be really tough. How do you balance all the responsibilities you have with your need to rest? How do you handle all the challenges that come from dealing with mean and hurting people? What about persecution and trials? There is good news though, you have Christ who strengthens you! He lives in you by the Holy Spirit.
Paul the apostle knew this truth that is why he wrote the verse we are considering today! I don’t need to know you to recognize that you have challenges! Sometimes the constant attempt of the enemy to steal from you can wear you out! If however you know this truth, you will not allow yourself to be worn out! You will simply hand over the issues to Jesus and let Him guide you.
Is God calling you into a ministry? A business? To write a book? To drop a habit? To try to repair a broken relationship, to write an exam, to give an amount to a person or ministry? Remember that all you need to confirm is that the leading is from God and you can be sure that the strength to do it is already in you!
Thank you dear Lord for your strength! Without you I can do nothing! I receive your strength today to do all that you call me to do! I receive strength to overcome all the lies and tricks of the enemy, I receive strength to bless all the people I will meet today! I receive strength to be patient through and overcome all the persecutions or trials I may encounter today! I pray all these in Jesus Name!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
