I can do all things

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

Once again I find myself back at this verse. The fact is I never tire of it. I keep Philippians 4:13 in a small frame under my monitor in the office. At home we have at least three items with this verse on it. What this verse means to me is not that I can do all things with Christ but that I cannot do anything without Him, at least anything worthwhile.

I am weak and if left to my own devices my life would be a wreck. I most likely would not be alive to write this today. I have made so many wrong choices. But Christ has lifted me up out of the ditch, cleaned me off and set me on the right road. He guides me and stabilizes me when I stumble.

I may not be able to leap tall buildings or stop a speeding bullet but I can, with Christ’s help, keep moving toward the prize. A prize I could never have obtained on my own but one I am assured is mine. He supplies the strength. I just need to follow Him.

Have a blessed day,

David

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
