“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
The human flesh is weak. On our own, without Christ, we are nothing. We fall into temptation at times. We make mistakes at times. We fail at times. But despite our weakness, failures, and mistakes Christ loves us.
This verse says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” That fact that this verse says through Christ is very important. We on our own are weak, but when we allow Christ to work through us and live in us, we can do anything. All our mistakes, weaknesses, and failures are turned into new chances, strengths, and successes.
God is a powerful and mighty God. Think of the victories he has helped you to win in your life. Think of the many hopeless situations He has pulled you out of. Think of horrible circumstances you may have been in that God has helped you to overcome. When you feel like you cannot go on and your flesh is failing you, lean on God. Remind yourself that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
Life is not easy. There will be challenges to overcome and battles to be fought, but if you allow Christ to work through you, you can overcome these challenges and battles instead of them overcoming you. Remember to always allow the fire God has created within you burn as bright as possible.
