Today's Verse: Philippians 4:13 (KJV)

Tuesday, April 13, 2004

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
— Philippians 4:13 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

I don't know about you, but I know I've grown soft and spoiled because of all the conveniences that I have allowed into my life. Could I honor God with my praises and thanksgivings if these conveniences were to suddenly vanish? I hope so. I want to be like Paul and live with the assurance that I can withstand any situation with the help of Christ.

My Prayer...

O God, without you my strength would fade and my confidence would fail. Thankfully I will never have to worry about this because your grace, your Spirit, and your Son will strengthen me and help me weather any storm. Thank you, in Jesus' name. Amen.
