Philippians 4:13 (NKJV) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
This verse was written while Paul was in prison. He wasn’t thinking about conquering the world, he was in prison and pulling on the strength of God to get him through it. Know that when you are going through things in life you can get through it because you have God.
- Do you call on God when you are going through tough times?
- Do you ever feel guilty because you always call on God when you are in trouble?
- God wants us to lean on him. it is very prideful to think you can get through things without God. He tells us, that whatever you are going through, trust him, lean on him and you can get through it. Was there ever a time you thought you didn’t need God?
God, I know that you love me and being a father, you want me to call on you in times of trouble and need. I know that whatever I go through you are there to give me strength, wisdom to know what to do, and hopefully the ability to be able to help someone else in the future who goes through it too. I know that being a Christian isn’t about living a trouble-free life, but being able to call on you when trouble does come our way. Thank you for being a loving caring father that we can call on and get through anything with your help.
