“For I can do ALL THINGS through Christ, who gives me strength”
Some days we think we’ve conquered the world only to discover that there’s still a long “to do” list left. It has taken every ounce of strength to get this far so the rest will have to wait for another time. Everyone experiences days like these.
Today’s verse reminds us how to achieve daily victory. We can do somethings & many things in our own strength but we can’t do ALL THINGS. If we want to achieve our full potential, we need help. We must obtain help through Christ. He gives us the strength & ability to do ALL THINGS, even the seemingly impossible!
So, how do we access Christ’s strength to do ALL THINGS? We start by ensuring Jesus is the central focus of our life. We place Him above & before everything else. We honour Him 1st in every arena of life – private, public and personal. Jesus gets the best of our time, our resource and our relationships. We vigilantly keep every arena of our lives focused on Jesus.
This week let’s open the gates of blessing and let Christ’s strength flood our lives. Let’s start by rearranging our life to honour Jesus even more. It’ll take many simple decisions throughout the day to achieve this. As we do the promise of Philippians 4:13 will overtake us & joy will become our constant companion.
