When I’m going through a struggle, Philippians 4:13, is my go to scripture. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” Over the years, I’ve learned I need His strength to get me through everything not just a struggle. I’ve learned to pray it. I’ve learned to quote it. I’ve learn to beg for it. In other words, I know the scripture well and have used it a lot.
I am also familiar with the scriptures before it. Where it speaks of being content. I have heard people misquote this scripture. It’s not talking about being happily poor or sadly rich. It’s not talking about being content with being hungry and accepting it as your plight. It’s saying whatever state you find yourself in, trust God. He will see you through. Strength comes from Him not from your circumstance.
So, when you feel like giving up because things around you seem more than you can handle, or when you think everything is going great, remember greater is He that is in you than He that’s in the world. God can turn any situation around in a blink of an eye. Don’t give up and don’t get complacent thinking you don’t need to go hard. In order to have the things you desire in life, you have to go get them. They will not fall out of the sky. The steps of a righteous man (woman) is ordered by the Lord. God will order steps that are moving!
