I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
What is it you can’t do?
There is an ongoing debate whether qualifications are more important than experience. When you are looking at a position description, what do you think? Ever said “I can’t do that, or I don’t have that skill”? As you continue building your relationship with the Almighty, your thinking will change. As you long for His presence, you study, worship, and praise more and more. Then something happens.
Psalm 18:28-29 God, all at once you turned on a floodlight for me! You are the revelation-light in my darkness, and in your brightness I can see the path ahead. 29 With you as my strength I can crush an enemy horde, advancing through every stronghold that stands in front of me. (The Passion Translation)
Psalm 18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. (KJV)
You wake up one day (today could be that day) and say, “There is nothing I can’t do with Christ working for, in and through me ”. What a great mental state to have, no matter what the situation, to know you can do all things. It is not enough to say it, however. Now you have to walk it out.
Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, 7 then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ. (The Passion Translation)
Take that job, apply for that promotion or new position. Don’t allow the required qualifications, on the paper, to stop you. Allow God, Who saved you, to encourage you. By the way, the same God will give you whatever you need to do the job.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, because of Who You are in me, there is nothing I can’t do. The words are easy enough to say, but the reality can be so far above me at times. The truth of this revelation causes me to weep. All means all. What an amazing God You are. There is no obstacle I can’t leap over. I know Romans 8 refers to not being separated from the love of God, but can troubles, pressures, and problems stop me from accomplishing what You have ordained for my life? No. You are giving me the confidence to say there is nothing I cannot do. If I really trust You and believe You, I can manifest Your greatness in all that I do. I want to live my life like I believe. Thank You for showing me the path. Please help me walk on it…
