“I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Few days back, I happened to accidentally close a huge safe door speedily, without realizing my thumb was in its edge. Totally jammed, I was in awful pain. Thankfully nothing major occurred, apart from the bruise inside. It started to turn black all around my nail, with numbness and pain, eventually increasing.
Sometimes life unexpectedly takes a detour. But, with that pain in the background; Jesus reminds us that He is our Healer and as He heals us; we can do all things through Him. Even when the pain seems to increase.
Beloved, don’t give that pain a whole lot of your attention. It could turn black because of the bruises, but run to Him every time you feel low. Rest it out deliberately in prayer and meditation of His Word. It’s only for a while. It won’t last long and you will be able to do more in His Strength than you would with your own.
Let’s say this aloud: “I can do this with excellence because it’s no longer I. My incapabilities, lack, weaknesses and failures don’t have a part with me. But, Christ, with His strength, abundance, wisdom and victory lives inside of me.”
