all things in Christ

Philippians 4:13

13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Since childhood, I have beaten myself over the head with negative self-talk. I have had a myriad of excuses why I wouldn’t be able to accomplish something:

I am not talented enough

I am not pretty enough

I am not smart enough

I don’t have enough money

I am to socially awkward

I can give a long list of why something won’t work, but rarely will I list reasons why something could work. Can you relate?

My 14 year old, Talon loves this verse. Any time, he hears someone say why something won’t work out, he quotes this scripture.

It is a great reminder. On our own, we can do nothing. With Jesus as our partner, we can do all things.

Is your dream to be a medical missionary? What’s stopping you?

Is your dream to become an auto mechanic? What do you need to do to make it work?

Is your dream to make a living as a writer? Then start writing.

Instead of listing why something WON’T work, make a list of why something WILL work.

Make a list of the steps that you will need to take to make your dream a reality.

What step can you take right now to push you in that direction?

Take 15 minutes every day to take some action to propel you forward in achieving your dreams.

Repeat to yourself: I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength!

Negative self-talk is a tactic of Satan to get us to doubt ourselves and God. When we doubt, we don’t move forward in God’s will. When we live our lives in doubt, we will never get anywhere. Don’t allow yourself to live like this. Don’t let Satan win. Have faith!

You CAN do ALL things!
