Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
What an encouraging thought for all believers at all times! We “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” What adds greater veracity to the application of this text in our lives is understanding the context in which Paul wrote it. It was one of the lowest points of his life. It would be there that the strength of Christ would be tested in Paul’s life and found to be efficacious in the worst case scenarios.
We too will find the full benefit of Christ’s strength in our deep moments of struggle. It is where “deep calls to deep” and the answer is always, “yes, you can, just trust Me; I’m with you and will never leave you.”
Remember my friend, He prepares a table for us in the presence of our enemies. So get up, wash your face and hands, then come to the table He’s prepared for you and feast on His divine cuisine. Taste the sweetness of His grace and mercy, the savory peace He’s prepared, the wonderful comfort, relief, help and hope, fresh out of the oven of His love.
I can almost smell it baking right now! Come, eat and be merry. You can do all things through Christ’s strength.
Peace and blessings!
