“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13

Life is full of challenges. For most of us, it seems a day does not go by where we are not tested in some way, and we are unsure if we are up to the task. We often feel that we simply don’t have the strength to face some of the challenges life throws at us. And the reality is, our own strength is usually not enough. Many of the challenges we face surpass our strength and our ability to handle them. But for those who know the Lord, there is great comfort in knowing that we don’t have to rely on our strength; as believers in Jesus Christ, we have been given His strength. And in His strength, whatever the challenge that we face, we have all we need, not just to meet it, but to overcome it. And as the verse says, the more we do all things through Him, the more His strength grows in us. The greater the challenge, and the more often we rely upon Him instead of on ourselves to meet it, the more aware we are of the unlimited strength He provides for us. No matter what we face, we have sufficient strength in Him. So, rest in that strength, and allow it to grow, as you allow Him to work through you.
