“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13, New Living Translation.
A recent conversation with my six year old son…
Christian: Mommy! Can you fix me something to drink?
Me: Ok, hold on Christian.
Christian: Mommy!!!! I need something to drink!
Me: I only have one set of hands. If I had four hands, two would be over here helping with the TV, and the other two would be over there fixing you something to drink.
Christian: I know Mom. I know you’re not an octopus.
My son is hilarious. In his precious mind, I can do everything. However, after hearing of my limitations and how I only have two hands, he suddenly realized that mommy’s not an octopus, and that I am in fact limited in my natural human ability. But isn’t it encouraging to know that there are no limitations in God? Nothing can limit what you can do through Christ. You have limitless potential, power and ability in Him. When we allow Him to fill our lives, there are no limits to how high we can go in Him, how far we can reach, and how much we can accomplish for His glory.
Whatever He’s told you to do, you can do it with the help of the Lord. You are anointed by God to do great things for His glory!
Prayer: Lord, I so love You. Thank You for how You minister to my heart. I receive Your limitless power and grace on my life. I receive Your help. Strengthen me, Lord. Fill my heart and my life. Show me what You want me to do and help me do it for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
