God Tells Me I’m Capable

In summary of Philippians 4:13 it says, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

Bottom Line:
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

What this means to me:
When I truly follow Christ in my life, he gives me the strength to face all conditions and to do all things.  At times I feel a gnawing, inner security and lack of confidence or a feeling of incompetence in my life.  This is related to the way I think about myself.  I begin to believe that I don’t matter, I’m a loser, and I’ll never do anything significant with my life.  What I need to realize is that these inner thoughts are all completely opposite to what God thinks.  I do matter to him and I am extremely important.  I need to keep my focus not on my self but on God and what he thinks.  When these thought come, I should repeat the things that God says about me; I am acceptable, I am lovable, I am valuable, I am forgivable, and I am capable.  So cast off my wrong thinking and believe what God says.  Because God thinks I’m capable, I will be able to face anything that comes my way.  I do not need to fear it.  He will be with me and will provide the strength I need to accomplish the task or face the situation.
