You Can If…

by | May 14, 2019 | Devotional | 0 comments


What makes you think you can’t?

Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Is there anything left out that can’t be done if Christ is strengthening you?
Nope. So why do we question whether we can?

Maybe the better question is…”is Christ strengthening you?”
This passage is preceded by some requirements that use these words.

Rejoice, Moderation, Thanksgiving, Peace, True, Honest, Pure, and Lovely

My flesh enjoys these more…
Groveling, Too much, Being right, and Loving only those who love me.

There is a divide that I can’t cross alone.
For Christ to strengthen me, I must possess Him in me.
Then, I meet the requirements. I can do all things through Him.

Nothing left out, and I like that!
