You Can Do It
Today, no matter what task is facing you, you can do it. In Philippians 4: 11-13 today, Paul is talking about the trials that he has faced in His life and in His ministry.
He recounts them all. Listen to what he says:
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
He says I’ve had everything, I’ve had nothing. I’ve had abundance, I’ve been left empty. There is nothing that I’ve not gone through in some fashion in my life.
And he concludes, I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
Today, you can do it. Whatever it is you are facing, you can do it.
Or put, actually better, Jesus Christ, through you, can do it. Jesus, working through you, can accomplish whatever task it is that you have in front of you today. Jesus, working through you, can do whatever it is you face today.
There is no task too high, no challenge too great. You can do it.
Through His power, strength, and might. You can do it.
Through Christ’s power working through us, may we be faithful! And may we accomplish whatever it is God has for us today!
