I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4: 13
Sometimes, we feel the weight of the world as we try and step ahead. We become blinded by worry and fear. But God faithfully opens our eyes. He helps us welcome Jesus and the STRENGTH He provides. He teaches lessons along the way and gives hope to endure. He lifts us from ditches of doubt.
I recently watched an ant try to climb from a small pool of water. I was amazed at the power of his STRENGTH! He carried something larger than himself and would have drown if he stayed in the hole. But he kept on trying; moving along, struggling to climb to the safety of solid ground. He was able to survive!
Many times, we feel hopeless. We forget Jesus is HERE. Worry robs our wholeness and strength becomes lost in fear. But God knows our hearts. He knows our every thought. He reminds us why we don’t walk alone! He rescues us from troubled waters and helps us find His mighty STRENGTH. He makes us stronger than before!
Christ will help us, as we preserve and trust. Our attitudes will shift from hopeless to hopeful, when we begin to understand we can do ALL THINGS through Christ who gives us STRENGTH. We must be prayerfully patient and work hard to move along. God will guide and provide for our days. He will faithfully help us learn to carry on.
Dear God, thank you for moments to reflect on the power of Your love and find peace in the promise of Your greatness. We will open our eyes to Your will and welcome the STRENGTH of Jesus. We will trust You every day of our lives and faithfully believe You will handle ALL things. Thank you for removing doubt. You help us admit we're weak and ready our hearts to become much stronger! We will trust You all of our days and gratefully praise what will come from the surrender of a grateful heart. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
