Today’s Scripture: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 GWT
We love the hope and confidence of Phil. 4:13 don’t we? However do we sometimes turn away from Christ when we need Him the most? If we believe we can do all things through Christ do we need to turn to our own strength and resolve?
I have witnessed an unhealthy pattern in myself at times where I try to overcome challenges on my own strength and then I turn to Christ only to turn back to myself. What happens when I turn back to myself? Let’s say it is less than honorable.
All the honorable and worthy things we are called to focus on in Philippians 4:8 can be turned away by turning away from Christ. When we are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges I pray we stay with Jesus. We can do all things through Him! We just need to stay there and we will rejoice always.
Will you stay with Christ when you need Him most?
Today’s Prayer: Father God, thank You for the Gift of Jesus Christ. Thank You for His life and death that give me strength. Forgive me for when I turn to my flesh for strength and fail. Help me to stay true to You. With thanksgiving and rejoicing in my heart I am asking You to keep me forever mindful that You take care of all of my needs. Amen
