I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.] –Philippians 4:13
Philippians 4:13 is a very popular scripture that is often quoted out of context. It says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” That doesn’t mean you can just do anything you decide to do because you want to do it. Paul was talking specifically about how he was able, through the power of Christ, to be content no matter what his circumstances were.
I do believe that, by God’s grace, we can do whatever we need to do in life. I think that’s a mindset we need to have. There’s nothing that’s too much for you if you’re trusting God. You can handle whatever comes your way because God promises that He’ll never put more on us than we can bear and deal with.
So keep a positive attitude no matter where you are right now, no matter what’s going on in your life. Cheer up–God is on your side. Stop being upset about things you can’t do anything about.
God wants you to know that He has an individual plan for your life, and He wants you to accept His unique plan for you and not compare your plan with anyone else’s. You have to trust God knows more about what you need and what you can handle than you do. After all, He knows you better than you know yourself!
