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

Doing things through Christ.  Christ opens the door to the impossible.  Miracles can happen.  All is possible with Christ at the helm.  No matter how it is said, Jesus helps us do what we need to do and what we want to do.

Many people will not face their fears and hide behind excuses.  Many will say, “I can’t do that” or “I am not strong enough” or “People will laugh at me.”  It does matter how much strength you have or if you think you can do it or if people will laugh.  If your trust is in Jesus, you will be able to do all things.

This does not give you an all access pass to do reckless things.  No matter how hard you try, you cannot jump off a building and not get hurt or killed.  You cannot jump out of an airplane and live from the fall.  The laws of physics apply because of God.  He made gravity.  It is to be respected.  However, if you have a problem with public speaking, Jesus can help.  He helped Moses and He can help you.

We should not worry about what other people think.  We can do all things through Christ regardless of others thoughts or feelings.  Jesus is not subject to people.  He is God after all.  We should do what God wants us to do.  If we are doing what God wants from us, we will succeed.  Our success is not measured by our standards but by God’s  Even in our failure, God can make it success.

Jesus can help us with “all” things, not just some things.  Jesus wants us to rely on Him for all things as well.  We don’t need to turn to anyone else.  We can truly do all because our strength is not our strength,  It is God, working in us, to make us do what we can do.  The next time you say you “can’t”, think again, and say you “can.”  God says you can so you can.  Do all things in mind of the fact that God is on your side.

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for what You tell us.  We can truly do all things because of Your strength.  Your power is immeasurable.  Your love is endless.  You truly want the best for us.  Let us surrender all that we are to You so that You may work through us.  You are on our side.  If You are for us, no one can stand against us.  You can help us through anything.

In Your name we pray,

Amen
