Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When you read this, one really must ponder...ALL things??!! Yes, ALL things!!
No matter what is in front of you, rest assure God is bigger!
No matter how weak we find ourselves, God is stronger!
I cant help but to constantly go back to Beniah who slayed a lion in a pit on a snowy day!
Daniel, thrown into a lion's den only to be practically petting them when the king checked on him the next morning. King David, walked through the enemy camp "invisible" to the army and "leaped" over a tall building. Esther, a peasant Jew...becomes the Queen of Persia. These are just a few of, we can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.
What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? What are your passions and your dreams?! What are you waiting for? Time? Money? Resources?
Do you know that the only limitation we have of what God is ABLE to do in and through us is....US!
We must BELIEVE...be available...willing...determined...and intentional to accomplish that which God has birthed in our hearts!
Walk it out! God tells us, If He is for us then who could possible be against us! Greater is He that is in us then in the world.
Then next question is...HOW? right! We must abide so closely to Jesus and be walking hand in hand with the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that supernaturally enables us to do that which we could not do on our own! It oozes into every part of our life. Learning to practice the presence of God on a daily basis, that we don't make a move without inviting Him to direct us! He never fails us!
This is what truly drives me personally! I get so excited about what realizing without God I can do nothing but with God, ALL things are possible!!! Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life...I am not able but He is!
Walking cheek to cheek with the Holy Spirit is like having a chauffeur driving you in life...He takes you where you need to go but also protects and watches out for you. When things seem to go off course, its because He is watching out for us. All we have to do is ask! We have not because we ask not, ask and it shall be given! How much more will our heavenly Father give to us than our earthly dads!
Trust in the undeniable confidence of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit and know He has divine plans, abilities, and a destiny for us all to accomplish for the Kingdom, no matter what we do!
Mic 3:8 ¶ But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This [is] the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
Its all about His Spirit, not our might or power! God as we call on you, help us all to have confidence and give you full reign to do in and through us what we could never imagine on our own!
Today, knowing you can do All things in Christ...there is something stirring in your heart that you have been holding back...I know...we are all there...so what are we waiting for?! Ask God and move forward!
Honestly, the Bottom Line is this...if you believe in God and His power for your outcome and rely on Him rather thinking that we in and of ourselves can do something on our own...there is no limit. If we think we got this and we dont involve God, our pride elevates ourselves above God and therefore we live as if we dont need Him and we can do a lot through our own flesh, but we will eventually sizzle out, hit the ceiling. With God, He blows the roof off and opens our opportunities as endless as the sky. Once we "get" this concept we are never the same again! God is explosive and powerful, He always leaves the evidence that He is in it...or not! Amen!
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)
BE BLESSED! YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!!!
With much love for the Brethren!
