I Can Do All Things

I can doWhen Christ is your strength, you can do ALL things. The Bible doesn’t say we can do some things, a few things, or even most things; it says that we can do ALL things. Wow! That’s exciting and empowering, isn’t it?

I struggle sometimes with trying to be strong enough on my own. I try to take care of things in my own strength, but end up getting frustrated and discouraged. And it’s understandable because we were not created to be strong enough on our own. We were created to be dependent on God’s strength.

‘“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”’ John 15:4-5

We can do nothing without Him, but we can do all things with Him.

Aren’t you glad that we don’t have to be strong enough, but can just rest in knowing He is strong enough to do it in us and through us?
