I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13. This verse from the Bible has relatedness to another verse, “With God, all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26. These two verses are my favorite ones. They remind me that God is always right there next beside me. They remind me how He holds my hand and guides me through every step I take in my life. They remind me how powerful and omnipotent He is.
    I’m facing a lot of circumstances right now. I’m concerned of what’s going to happen tomorrow. I seek God for guidance, protection, and help. Philippians 4:13 says that I could face all my situations because Christ strengthens me. He provides me the energy I need in order to solve all my problems. Surely they won’t be solved in a blink of an eye but I can stop worrying about them.
    On the other hand, Matthew 19:26 says that with God being on my side, He will make things easier for me because with Him, all things are possible. It may be impossible for a man to lift 1000 pounds, but to Him it’s a piece of cake. And I thank Him for that.
    This coming week, we have our examinations for the quarter. To be honest, I’m quite nervous. One of my most important priorities is a higher rank in the honor students list. Hitherto, I’m in the fourth rank. I’ve always hoped and prayed to be a little higher than that. Third or second will do. That is why I’m doing my best to reach that goal.
    I believe in myself because God believes in me. I thank Him for the confidence He has provided. Without Him, I’m not where I am right now.
    My beloved readers, if you got a very tough situation to deal with right now, don’t lose hope. Have faith. God is right there beside you to help you out in times of need. He’s always available. There may be a lot of circumstances in the near future, but dealing with it is not a problem, as long as you have God right beside you.
