ALL OUR POSSIBILITIES ARE IN CHRIST
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
Our verse of focus is the declaration of the Apostle Paul, as he lived in accordance with God's will. Before his conversion, as Saul, he was given much power and sway by earthly authorities, which he used to his advantage, at the expense of Christians. On the other hand, as a Christian, the Apostle Paul encountered a very troubled, tumultuous life. Paul's endurance was sustained by his resilient, relentless faith in God. As a result, he confidently, convincingly and courageously stated, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
The Apostle Paul was fully persuaded that no matter what happened, he could rely on God's strength.
Life, as we experience it today, presents many challenges. Some appear to be insurmountable, while others, though of a lesser degree, seem to sap our mental energy. Sometimes, as a result of the challenges, we feel weighed down, to the point of being depressed. Whatever our situation, the strength that God gave Paul is always avaliable to us. The word 'all', as used in the verse, is indicative of the fact that in Christ, there is absolutely nothing that we cannot achieve. When we think that we have reached our 'low ebbs', and the 'high flows' are obscured, trust God for strength.
The strength that God supplies, is the ability to withstand the present perplexing experience, knowing that God will not fail to bring deliverance. Remember, in God's strength, in God's power, in God's might, all things are possible. Keep trusting and believing Him. We can advance knowing that we can do all things through Christ who supplies the strength and the power.
