“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”

Philippians 4:13 (New American Standard Bible)

Wow. Does this mean I can fly, dunk, or play the violin if I have never touched one before? Probably not what Paul was writing about. The key to this verse is that our strength to accomplish and “be”, can come from God working in us.

Through the Bible and His Spirit, He can develop our character, enhance our motivation, give us the right perspective, and make us wiser. All of which will ‘strengthen’ us to accomplish greater things. His desire is that we place our dependence and trust in Him (faith). We can go through our day asking Him for strength even in the things we feel capable in. Our faith and strength will grow!


Heavenly Father, I know You can grow my abilities and talents. Remind me to continually, in my thoughts, whisper prayers for strength so I can see You work through me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
