He strengthens me

 Philippians 4:13 says:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

 The important part of this verse to recognize is, ‘through Christ’. This verse is not granting us superpowers and it does not give us authority to do whatever we please. It encourages us to know that if it is God’s will, then we can do it. Not through our own strength, but through His.

We should be constantly seeking the will of God and his plan for our lives. This becomes difficult when we aren’t 100% thrilled with what we are asked to do. It is reassuring to know that God has the plan and He alone knows where this is all going to lead.

 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

We don’t always have all the answers and we don’t always have all the strength, but God can work it all out. He will be glorified through our weaknesses.

I don’t feel adequate…
You can do all things!

I’m afraid…
You can do all things!

I feel discouraged…
You can do all things!

I’ve gone through so much…
You can do all things!

I have so much going against me…
You can do all things!

I’m not good enough…
You can do all things!

I have a lot of plans. None of those plans matter, unless they are His. He has a lot of plans for me. Sometimes, I feel like those plans are too overwhelming or difficult.

God says that I don’t need to worry about any of that. He will give me the strength.
