Only Through Christ Who Strengthens Me

On my desk at work I have a daily Bible devotional titled “God’s Way Day by Day” by Dr. Charles Stanley. I hadn’t updated it in a while so yesterday morning I flipped from September 2nd (when I last updated it) to September 9th and what I read there touched my heart. Therefore, I thought I’d share it with you:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13

Anytime you feel inadequate, go to God and say, “I feel inadequate. I’m trusting You to be my adequacy.” If you feel ignorant, trust God to be your source of wisdom. If you feel yourself totally without adequate resources, trust God to provide what you need.

Powerful stuff that we can all relate to. Truth be told, none of us are or will ever be at a place where we can handle every single thing that life throws at us. If we had that capability, then we wouldn’t need God. But we do need God. I need God. You need God. We all need God. Therefore, don’t be afraid to tap into the strength provided through Christ.

I heard an old preacher say one time, “When you allow God to put his SUPER on your NATURAL, watch how great things happen.”

If you clicked on this blog because of the title, then just know that you read the title correctly.

A great friend of mine sent this article to me a few days ago and, once I read it, I was immediately disturbed by it. Turns out that this has been generating a lot of criticism among Christian evangelicals lately. Take a look at this article and see what you think.

The bottom line question: What do you think?
