Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
You’ve got this! You can do it! You can make it another day, if you will rely on His strength and don’t try doing it on your own! You can build that business He has called you to ~ give it to Him! You can do whatever He is calling you to if you will walk with Him and rely on His strength, wisdom and love to see you through.
So often we get caught up in the doing and we find ourselves one day trying to do it all on our own! When you get there, stop and ask Him to help you get back on track with Him in the lead! Have you ever started out on a project and you are so excited about what God is doing and going to do and then one day you realize that you haven’t talked to Him about it or asked for His direction in a while and you are overwhelmed and consumed? I have! It’s frustrating because all of a sudden you find yourself going to God exasperated because things aren’t working but you are! You are working night and day and totally consumed to the point where you can’t seem to get other things done that need to be done and everyone seems to want something from you and you just can’t take it anymore and you aren’t sure why you ever began! Oh….. that’s right. God led you to it and then you decided somewhere along the line to do it yourself. Been there!
This verse doesn’t mean that you can do it on your own. It means God wants to work with you on everything in life and it is in His strength that you will be able to do it. He never meant for you to do it alone or to walk through life alone! He wants to walk with you and He wants to carry the load. He loves you and wants what is best. He wants you to succeed at all that He has created you to be, but that will require your walking with Him.
Seek Him today with your whole heart and follow Him! Write down Jeremiah 29:11-13, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” He wants to be there! He wants to walk through every detail of your life with you so don’t go it alone. Trust Him and follow His lead. Give Him that load to carry for you so you can focus on what He has for you to do. His best is yet to come!
