“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
– Philippians 4:13
The impossible becomes possible, Amen.
How, when, why? Seem to be our key questions…let us launch right in.
1. Through Trials
Christ gives us the strength to not only endure the tough times, but also to grow during them. We aren’t meant to just slog through the pain; we’re meant to see our faith blossom right in the face of our battles. God equips us with the armor we need to stand firm:
That’s the kind of strength Jesus gives.
2. Through Contentment
How can we have this type of contentment? By turning our attention from what we think we need to the only thing that truly matters:
After all, our hope isn’t in what we have or don’t have here on earth. Our hope is in Christ:
Jesus gives us the strength to see beyond our present circumstances and to trust in Him to provide everything we truly need.
3. Through His Victory
Jesus died in our place and came back to life as a true Conqueror, and all He accomplished gets credited to our account. We didn’t earn a single bit of it, but we’re guaranteed so much.
A fresh start:
He won the victory, and we get to share the prize. Now, that’s how we can truly do all things through Christ.
