It is Possible!

We doubt, don’t we?! Our lives are filled with self-effort, mine included, until we bow our stubborn and foolish hearts, forget “how can God?” and trust like a child who jumps off the edge of the pool into the arms of her Father. You too, regardless of age, have the same choice: Jump or Stay.

Though ‘to jump‘ is unknown, frightening, and fearful at times, JUMP into the arms of your Daddy…fearlessly live UP!

When we put “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” in context, we see Paul was saying, “I‘ve had seasons in life where I‘ve had nothing and seasons where I‘ve had everything. I‘ve developed the ability to thrive in both seasons by learning to access the resource that never changes, no matter the season, He is unchangeable, Christ‘s strength is sufficient. Christ is everything I need.”

For us to navigate the same range of circumstances and find God, our strength in every situation, we have to know where to look and how to continue to look there in the face of the enemy‘s distractions.

Typically, these distractions are going to try to get us to wish we were in someone else‘s process, resist the lessons God is trying to teach us in our circumstances, rush the process, or skip steps in the process. Falling for any of these will prevent us from thriving and will ultimately put us in dangerous places. Avoiding these will enable us to find our strength—God—and grow regardless of the season or circumstance.

“Not that I speak from [any personal] need, for I have learned to be content [and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy] regardless of my circumstances. I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need. I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]” Philippians 4:11-13
