I think all Christians can quote Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” It is easy to quote the words, but how many feel those words from the depth of your heart? I was thinking over my life today and how many times I’d said, “I just can’t do this.” Even better, how many times I had told God, “I just don’t think I’m strong enough for this.” *** smiles *** My, what patience my Poppa has with this daughter of His! Just last night I found myself in tears over a situation that my Father had told me was in His hands. Tonight as I’m reading and writing I heard my Father saying daughter, I am making you stronger. I am making your faith stronger. All these things, you do them through Me, I am your strength.
I wanted to share this with that person who is completely overwhelmed right now. Read Philippians 4:13 again. It says you can do ALL things BECAUSE Christ STRENGTHENETH you. Not because you take it on alone, but because He IS your strength. Whatever you are facing, you CAN do it because you have Christ holding you up. You are not alone in this battle. Say that verse from the heart as a weapon in the battle of spiritual warfare. Keep it in your arsenal for when you feel can’t go on and then say it out loud. You CAN do (whatever it is) because Christ strengthens YOU! Write it on a note card if you must. Don’t just say those words, understand God is talking to you and you can do ALL things through CHRIST. Believe that! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
