Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.
There are times when we can all use that reminder. When you feel battered and bruised, tossed to and fro in the raging storms of life, doesn’t this provide great comfort in knowing that you can draw upon the strength of the Lord?
You don’t have to fight this battle alone. Whatever it is you’re going through, it matters. It all matters. YOU matter. And it is important to wade through each and every emotion that comes flooding in. Just don’t get stuck there. Don’t let it bog you down to where you feel like you’re in quick sand. Reach up and grab the hand of the Lord. Allow Him to fill you with all the strength that you need to get you through whatever it is you are facing.
No, God will not give us more than we can bear. There are times we may feel like it, and I’m sure there have been times you’ve said that God sure does trust me to give me all of this to handle.
Friend, all you have to do is call upon the name of the Lord. Call upon the name of Jesus, and feel your weak, frail body start to feel whole again full of strength and courage even to face what lies ahead.
Say it out loud if you have to in order to draw strength and to feel the comfort of His Great and Mighty Arms around you. Say it loud and proud, with authority and conviction, with great determination!
My strength comes from the Lord!
While it will not make the storms of life immediately grow calm, God will calm YOU, His child.
Rest in His presence and allow Him to fill your cup until it runneth over, sweet child of God!
Yes, indeed. Your strength comes from the Lord.
Allow those comforting words to embrace your entire being: body, mind, and soul. Feel the strength rushing in now as God provides all that you need.
