I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me – Philippians 4 : 13
We are used to this verse and we declare it most of the times with our mouth but many times after the declaration, trials come our way and we often forget that this verse works when there are trials and when there are no trials.
We are here on earth in the image of God and His likeness because He created us so. We are created with a very great power which we are yet to know. There is a greatness in the inside of you which is not in any other person. There is a mission which God has written your name and He expect you and you alone with His help to fulfill. The trials are part of the things you need to overcome so that you can get that crown which He has prepared for you.
Anything you do, do it as if there is no tomorrow. Do it as the only opportunity you have to demonstrate that which He has placed in you. No matter how miserable you might feel you are, there is nothing bad with that if you have decided to think of yourself that way but what I want you to remember are:
– He that is you is greater than those that are outside of you
– No power is greater than God who created you in His own image and likeness
– You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus
– You are an overcomer through Christ Jesus
– You are very precious in the sight of God.
– Be patient
– Be hopeful
– Trust God’s promises
Therefore, I want to encourage you to stop demoting yourself because you have all that you need just within you to sail through any circumstances that the devil throws your way or any mistake you might have made in life that is why the Bible says in, Micah 7 : 8 ”Rejoice not against me o mine enemy, when I fall, I shall arise, when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me”.
Father, we thank You for all the power and greatness that You have deposited in us. Lord Jesus, we thank You for what You have done in the cross of calvary through which we have the reconciliation power. Give us the grace Father to stand firm and trust what You have placed in us because it is not to destroy us but to empower us to be an overcomer so that at the end, the glory and honour will be given to You in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
