I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Are Christians perfect? Of course not . . . but we can be powerful! We are tempted and tested just like everyone else, but we can overcome temptation and triumph over trials because we have Christ living within us.
Every once in a while, you have one of those days that just seem to be a struggle from the moment you wake up. Maybe today is one of those days for you! If so, I’ve got some encouraging news for you. Even though we all have struggles and fall short from time to time, we have the power of Christ at work within us every moment to help us get past the problems and…in spite of those problems…still accomplish great things!
The key to tapping into this power is to keep our eyes on Christ and not try to compare ourselves to someone else.
Here’s what I want you to remember today. The verse above says that we can do anything for the Lord because He gives us strength. We may struggle and stumble, but with Christ we can rest assured that we are heading toward greater things because He is always with us.
Do you really believe you can accomplish anything Christ wants you to accomplish? Tell Him so today, and thank Him for His promise of strength for every situation.
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING TODAY THROUGH THE STRENGTH GOD GIVES YOU!
