Good morning! Happy Friday to you all!
TFTD: You can do All things…Do you believe that?
Philippians 4:13 (NIV)
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
How many times have you quoted Philippians 4:13? I quote this scripture a lot when I’m in a difficult situation or when taking on a new task. It’s something about this scripture that boost my self-esteem and confidence. But I wonder how many believers, truly believe in this scripture? Do you really believe that you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you or is it just lip service you are performing?
Sometimes we will face challenges that may appear bigger than our natural abilities, but when we tap into the strength of Christ we are able to conquer them. It’s not enough to just quote the scripture, we must believe that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. It amazes me how people can walk around confident in their own ability, when in reality they aren’t really do anything, but refuse to embrace the power of Christ. When you believe in the power of Christ that dwells within you, you can speak to sickness and be healed, you can declare and decree peace in the atmosphere and chaos will cease, you can obtain a job that you don’t qualify for on paper, you can change your life and help others in the process when you believe.
It’s important as believers that we tap into this power that lives within us. We don’t have to live in fear or walk around defeated if we truly believe we can do ALL things through Christ. Imagine what would happen in the kingdom if every believer would believe in this power and then operate in this belief? We could conquer the world. Our children would go to school defeating peer pressure and low self-esteem because they would believe they could do anything. Competition within the church would die because all believers would believe in their unique ability to serve Christ instead of trying to out-do the other. We would conquer the world instead of trying to cater to it all because we would believe we could do so much more than the world could offer us.
God has placed a vision on your heart, but you have been hesitant because of disbelief. I challenge you to tap into the power of Jesus and truly believe you can do ALL things through Him. God is the one who gives you strength. You don’t have to worry about your ability because once Christ adds His super to your natural you will be unstoppable.
I pray you have a blessed day and remember you are a powerful creature in Christ! God bless!
