Opening Prayer

Pray that God would transform your mind today.  Ask him to renew your strength through Christ.

Read: Philippians 4:13

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Thought:

Do you have thoughts of quitting? Do you face a situation that you feel is more than you can handle? Do you feel your physical and emotional strength are gone?

If we are honest with ourselves, all of us have felt this way sometime in our lives.  If this is you today, then God has a promise for you that you need to hear.

When you examine this short verse, you see that Paul is thinking positive. He is saying ‘I can do it.’ You also see that he is not relying on his own skill, talent, or drive; he leans on Christ for strength.

My encouragement for you today is that you would set your focus and HOPE in the Lord’s strength.  Lean on Him.  Give the Lord your day today, whatever is ahead of you; remember that you can do it with Christ’s help.
