We all face problems or issues at some point in our lives. There are times however that these issues or problems can seem too much to bear, or can really hit us hard and begin to tear us down. At these times we can often forget that God is there right beside us and He is bigger than any problem or issue you could ever face.
The best part about it is that God is always waiting to help you out, all you need to do is ask Him, put your faith in His ability to help you and your problem or issue becomes smaller and more manageable. I am often encouraged by Philippians 4:13 in the Word of God which gives us this encouraging promise:
“For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.” NLT
The King James Version of Philippians 4:13 says it like this:
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
This verse from Philippians 4:13 is such an encouragement because it shows us that with God helping us anything is possible. Notice that the verse does not say “I can do some things, or most things”. When we give up on trying to solve our own problems and issues, and we take these things and lay them at the foot of the cross and place our complete faith and trust in God and His ability to take care of these problems and issues, we are renewed and we no longer have to carry the entire burden ourselves.
I encourage you to take a hold of this wonderful promise from the Word of God, memorize it and when you come up against a situation that begins to tear you down, or that you don’t think you can stand up against, just remember that:
Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”
Repeat this over and over to yourself and then give up that burden in your life to Jesus Christ and then let Him help you.
