DAY 9 THURSDAY: JULY 2020

THE ABILITY TO DO ALL THINGS!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

Every Christian has the ability to do all things through Jesus Christ in life. That is the reason why a Christian dares not boast in the flesh but in Christ Jesus. In the opening text, the Bible says that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The ability to be able to withstand challenges, tackle problems and obstacles in life is in Christ Jesus. A Christian should take note of the fact that with God all things are possible to do all things in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the ability to do all things lies solely on the strength of the Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus. The absolute grace to do all things had been received by a Christian in life forever.

The Bible told us vividly in the book of Zechariah about Zerubbabel; God’s high priest. He was facing a lot of challenges and obstacles in life. But God sent His angel to declare to Him thus, “So he answered and said to me: ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Therefore, the absolute power to do all things does not depend on one’s strength and ability but surely by the Spirit of the Lord in life. Anyone devoid of the Holy Spirit becomes powerless and victim of life’s challenges and obstacles in life. A Christian has the ability to do all things through Jesus Christ in life forever.

A Christian who wants to be able to do all things through Jesus Christ, he should learn to stand firm by putting on the whole armor of God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to put on the whole armor of God, he becomes fully covered with God’s grace to do all things and operates supernaturally in life.  The ability to do all things through Jesus Christ depends on your physical and spiritual alertness through the gospel message of salvation in life. With God on one’s side all things are absolutely possible in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian has the ability to do all things through Christ Jesus; therefore, arise and put on the whole armor of God in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy (Colossians 1:11).
