From the Pastor….

Week: September 24, 2023 – September 30, 2023
Read: Philippians 4:13
Key Verses: “ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

The context of this verse focuses on the God-given power to endure any circumstance in your
life; however, Paul says something interesting. Before he brings up Christ, he brings up himself.
When people read this passage, they get excited that Paul brings up God, but they glaze over the fact that he first believes in himself. I want you to think about all the things that are not going well, even as you are reading this devotional and just say aloud, “I can do all things.” Now, say it again, “I can do all things.” There is something about saying statements aloud that changes the way you think.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you really believed what you have just said? Wouldn’t you sleep better tonight knowing there is nothing you cannot do? Wouldn’t you walk around with your head up and your back straight, under this premise? If you believed what you said, you wouldn’t be intimidated by anybody, anywhere, at any time. Can you imagine how different your day would go if you started it with an affirmation that you could do all things.

We quote it. We get excited over it. We minister to other people around it, but unfortunately, we don’t believe it; at least not like we should and not for the level of devils we have to fight daily. As I consider the people with whom my path has crossed, the most successful of those people, are the ones who speak positively about themselves. None of them are more gifted than you. They don’t have more “things” than you. They just think differently than you.

Life is equal opportunity. We all come here with the same things; two legs, two hands, two ears
and a couple hands. What you do with what God gave you, is left up to you. In fact, the Bible
reads that God has given to each, a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). It would not be right for
salvation to be based on belief, and then God does not give you enough belief to be saved. We
have the same faculties as others; we just don’t get the same results. Perhaps the difference is
believing that you “….can do all things.”

Prayer: Father God, embed in my spirit that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens
me. I will not fret, worry, or have anxiety about anything. I cast the whole of my care on you and I believe, Father that according to your Word, you will bring to me spiritual restoration,
deliverance of the things that are not of you, devotion to your will, increased finances, divine
health, increased faith, and dedication to spread Your Gospel. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
