I CAN DO IT!
Philippians 4:12-13 – Devotional
“I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
I can recall many years ago when I was just a lad, thinking that I could accomplish some feat that was actually beyond my boyish ability. When my dad offered to do it I would refuse his help and say, “I can do it!” I was usually wrong!
I fear that many times we find ourselves in the same spiritual quandary. We try to do things our way, on our terms, and on our schedule. We fail to wait for the Lord to give us the approval and seem to feel that we can wait until we make a mess of things before we call upon Him to help us.
Paul writes to the church at Philippi and to us in our day, what he has experienced in his ministry. There has been good times and desperate times. The vital lesson that he wants to share with us is that God uses both the good times and the not so good times to get the glory and accomplish His purposes.
If you have not discovered the power God brings as we go through the tough times, get prepared for a rich blessing! God always gets the victory!
Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
