Topic: YOU DO ALL THINGS
Read: Philippians 4:11-13
Memorize: “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13
This title may sound contrary to the popular Christian slogan, I can do everything though him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13). As true as the statement is, reading the verse out of context never helps Christians who want to realize their full potentials. Rather than the material and social prosperity ascribed to the passage. Paul was referring to more of enduring hardships and debilitating conditions without giving up the pursuit of the divine assignment.
Many Christians are attempting to do too many things at a time, and ending up being frustrated, unproductive, depressed, sometimes engaging in unwholesome/ungodly acts. Yes you are wired to be strong and mighty in the Lord, yet you shouldn’t wear out yourself trying to do everything. Activity is not accomplishments. It is to look inwards, identify your strengths and build upon them.
A very important aspect is that of meeting the needs of others (Matthew 26:11). Resources are not evenly distributed. Striving to meet others’ needs to the detriment of your inner peace and family integration wil surely wear you out and render you’re your sincere acts ineffective. Always remember you cannot do all things! Just do your best in God and leave the rest.
Whatever GOD has given you to do for a particular time, yes, you will receive inner strength to do (Luke 22:42-43). Whatever God has sent others to do for and with you are not to be done (directly) by you.
1. Lord help me to identify needs I cannot meet so I will not constitute a mess to the Gospel message in Jesus’ name
2. Ask for godly vision, wisdom and power to do the work of the gospel for ministers of the gospel
3. Ask that the Lord will always be with the believers as each experiences his hour of darkness.
God give my strength to do all things according to your Will in Jesus name
