“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
It is through Christ the anointed One and His anointing that we can do what God is telling us to do. But “I don’t feel strong. I feel like this is too hard for me. I feel frustrated and worried about everything….”. But what about Christ? It would’ve been different if Paul would have said, “I can do all things” and just left it at that, but he had a revelation of Christ and this produced in him strength to endure, fight, and finish strong. You can also endure, fight and finish strong through Christ. Don’t focus on your feelings, how it looks, or your own abilities. You can’t do it, but Christ in you can. You are not strong enough to bear up under any pressure for a long period of time, but Christ in you can. You can’t make it, but Christ in you will help you to make it. Your faith and confidence in Christ alone is what makes you unstoppable and a mighty woman of God. Don’t fall into the trap of looking outward for validation of what you can do. Look within yourself and see Christ and be made strong. See the Lion of Judah. See Him rising on that third day with all power in His hands. And then see Him in you. Wow! All the self-doubting and all low self-esteem can’t stop you any longer when you focus on Christ. Your attitude becomes one that tells the challenges of life to “Bring it on!”
Prayer: Father, You are my God and I am Your daughter. Thank You for speaking to me today. I receive every Word by faith. No matter how I feel right now, I choose to put my focus on Christ and receive His strength and power to endure, to fight and to win through Christ. Help me remember to encourage others to do the same. I love You and bless You. In Jesus Name, Amen.
