Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/10/14

This week’s scripture is from Philippians:

jesus_white“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”    (Phil. 4:13)

Situations arise in our lives which seem to take great strength or great effort in order to do what needs to be done, and we do not always have the strength that is needed. Some tasks seem beyond our ability to handle in the way they need to be done, or sometimes we despair that they are just more than we can do in the time that we have to do them. We see that what lies before us is overwhelming.

Yet whatever the situation we face there is one who is more than able to see us through, for He is never too weary; He is never too weak; He will always provide what is needed to accomplish what needs to be done. If we turn to Christ Jesus for our strength, He will strengthen us; if we ask, He will make it possible to do what we cannot do on our own. Whatever it is that needs doing, He will see to it that you can do it.

May the Lord bless you with His strength as you face each day.
