Our Source of Strength

Our Source of Strength - Joan Cook

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Our family has had Yorkshire Terriers for many years. They are very small dogs, weighing around four pounds each. One of our dogs, Mindy did not see herself as small and would fight to protect our family and her territory. Often times, Mindy fought with our neighbor's Chow and Golden Retriever only to learn that she did not have the power behind her bark. She always retreated to the familiar territory of our front porch.

As Christians, the devil wants nothing more than to have us retreat from our battles and to think that we are not powerful enough. And, alone we are not! Unlike my little dog who barked loudly, then ran home at any sign of trouble, we can stand and face our foe with confidence knowing that our Lord is there helping us through our battle.

How much strength do you need today? Are you facing a situation that you do not think you can handle? Is there a problem in your life that seems insurmountable?

Then you need to go directly to your source of strength! Jesus will give you His might and power to be able to withstand anything, to be able to do anything, to be able to be anything! Jesus said that we could do greater works than even He did! That is pretty incredible!

If you want to start living the victorious Christian life and stop allowing Satan to defeat you into thinking you are not strong enough, good enough, smart enough, rich enough, or even thin enough, tap into His power source and be all you can be for Christ! Remember, YOU can do all things through Christ who strengthens YOU!

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will forgive you for often times trying to live the Christian life in your own strength. Praise God that you that you can do all things through His strength.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Kenya GoTeam. Praise God for each individual decision for Christ. Pray for our new brothers and sisters in Christ as they seek to know the Lord in a deeper way. Pray for their spiritual growth and they will become involved in a local Christian church.
