For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NLT)
Sometimes we don't realize we can handle more than we think. It is through the power of Jesus Christ that we are able handle what comes our way. God has already declared the promise to us that He will not allow us to go through more than we can bare (1 Corinthians 10:13).
We will encounter tests in our lives that we can't handle in our own strength. This happens so that we can't say we did it, but that God would receive the glory.
We can not endure in our own strength but when we rely on God, He gives us the ability to make it through.
There were times this last semester of school where I felt like I wanted to give up. It was becoming hard to balance the things that I needed to do as Music/Media director, as a husband and as a student. I can honestly say that I have experienced, more than ever, the fulfillment of God's supernatural strength in my life.
In my mind, I didn't think I could make it, but I would always try to keep focused on God.
I want to encourage you today to keep your focus on God no matter how tough life becomes. Only by His strength will we make it through, but WE WILL make it through in the name of Jesus.
