SUCCESS COMES IN CANS, PART I
 
Mark 9:24 
I do believe; help my unbelief
 
Someone has said that success comes in cans and failure in cannots. The "Twenty Cans of Success," taken from God's Word, will expand your knowledge of our faith-object, the Almighty God. Building your faith by internalizing these truths over the next two days will help lift you from the miry clay of the cannots to the reality that in Christ you can do all things.
 
Twenty Cans of Success Why should I say I can't when the Bible says I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13)? Why should I lack when I know that God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19)? Why should I fear when the Bible says God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)? Why should I lack faith to fulfill my calling, knowing that God has allotted to me a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)? Why should I be weak when the Bible says that the Lord is the strength of my life and that I will display strength and take action because I know God (Psalm 27:1; Daniel 11:32)? Why should I allow Satan supremacy over my life when He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)? Why should I accept defeat when the Bible says that God always leads me in triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14)? Why should I lack wisdom when Christ became wisdom to me from God and God gives wisdom to me generously when I ask Him for it (1 Corinthians 1:30; James 1:5)? Why should I be depressed when I can recall to mind God's lovingkindness, compassion and faithfulness, and have hope (Lamentations 3:21-23)? Why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on Christ who cares for me (1 Peter 5:7)?
 
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your loving care reflected in the incredible promises in Your Word.
