You Can Do It!

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

But here is the real question.  Should you? 

I've heard many people quote this scripture when facing difficult times.  Believe me, I've quoted it on more than one occasion.  

But one day a lady called me to say, "I can do it, Pastor.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  "Really!" I said.  What are you facing?  "Well, pastor, I had to buy the less luxurious car than the one I wanted.  But I know that God will help me deal with it anyway."  

I shook my head, and yes it really happened. 

What do you need God's strength for?  You need it to face temptations every day.  To pray for people who are less than loveable.  To share the Gospel with someone who may or may not reject you.  To bring your attitude into submission of God's will.  

God will strengthen you to do His will.  Seek His will, and He will make sure you're successful. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, strengthen me to follow You today.  AMEN
