I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Gives Me Strength

“Now, you will understand even better why I stripped you of your bodily strength. You see, while you were weak, you served Me with all your strength. Now that I have increased your strength, you do not serve Me as before (Jesus) (August 27-28 1965 )

Today’s Readings: I know also how to live with abundance. In every circumstance and in all things I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry, of living in abundance and of being in need. I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me. (Philippians 4)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, we can do all things through You but sometimes that translates in our weak minds to running around over committed and stressed out and asking You to bless it. That is not what You mean- that is us relying on our own strength and our own wills. Lord, sometimes You allow us to be weak and to be in circumstances out of our control precisely because You need us to see it is Your strength and not ours that allows us the grace to do Your Will. Fiat, Lord, in the ups and the downs You are still on the throne and You guide our steps if we would be willing to allow our feet to journey together with You!
