Through Christ, you can do it

24 May 2023 ‘I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me.’ Philippians 4:13 AMPC

Paul wrote: ‘I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]’ (v. 13 AMPC). Paul believed he could handle whatever life threw at him. Do you believe that too? What are the things that trigger your fear and cause you to say, ‘I could never handle that’? Failing an exam? Facing an unexpected illness? Suddenly losing a loved one? Having to care for an elderly relative or a young child? Being in debt? Having to cut back on some of the things you enjoy in life? Losing a job? Most people have some sort of situation that truly seems impossible to them, something they aren’t sure they could handle. The truth is, even though some situations might be extremely undesirable or challenging for you, God says you can do whatever you need to do in life. He doesn’t say everything will be easy; He doesn’t promise that you’ll enjoy every little thing you do; but with His help, it is possible to find joy in the middle of doing them. How? Through the power of the One ‘Who infuses inner strength into you’. When you need money, you make a withdrawal from your bank account. When your car is empty, you make a withdrawal from the petrol pump. So when life gets overwhelming, pray and make a withdrawal on God’s grace, love, strength, power, and guidance.
