… through HIM who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Just a brief but (hopefully) good thought for the day.
This is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible. Simple, yet so very important. Paul is saying that he can do ALL things, not just some, through the Lord, who strengthens him. This is meant for you as much as for me. You can do ALL things if you have faith in the Lord. Jesus tells us that we can move mountains if we have faith. The problem is that doubt gets in our way. It is a true cancer that eats away at faith.
After a good week off I am overwhelmed with work and it feels like a crushing weight. So, I turned to the Bible for help and this verse stands out. I can indeed do all things if I do them through and in concert with the Lord. In case you don’t know it, you can do ALL things too!
There is a reason why I have found that one of the Secrets to Life is BELIEVE. Belief builds faith, which trumps doubt. With faith there is nothing you can’t do. Belief in yourself starts with belief in the Lord and his infinite power.
Have a great day doing ALL things through the Lord and feel the strength!!!
