I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:11 NKJV
When I first learned Philippians 4:11, I would just focus on the idea of being able to do all things. I was completely overlooking the most critical part of this verse which is: “through Christ.” The truth is, we can’t do everything in our own strength. We can try, but we will always come up short. However, through Christ who lives on the inside of us, we can do anything He is calling us to do. When we seek God’s strength and power, we see that we can do more with Him than without Him. Whatever you are facing today remember it is only through Christ that we are strengthened to do all things.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your wisdom embedded throughout scripture. Please help me to never rush ahead of You with the thought that I can do life on my own but instead please give me the desire to lean on You for all things. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
Will you lean on God’s Word and ask for His strength or will you continue to try to do things all by yourself?
