When you’re feeling anxious, I encourage you to meditate on all the words of Philippians 4, and especially these words: “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Understand this profound secret: contentment in your relationship with Christ is a powerful state of mind. Because Christ lives in you, you can do all things with His strength. In Christ, you can be full of peace, joy, and contentment.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or find yourself stuck in “I can’t,” turn it around and declare what God says. Say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Remember, God is on your side, empowering you for every good work.
Remember, the power that is in you is greater than the power of fear. When thoughts come that say, “You’re not able,” choose faith by saying, “I can do all things through Christ!”
You might think, “I don’t know if I can make it,” but God wants you to know that all things are possible with Him. Don’t look at what you can’t do; look at what God can do through you!
Remember, through Jesus, you are a new creation. The old is gone, and it’s time to embrace the new that God has for you. Even if you can’t see it, even if you don’t fully understand, take a step of faith and declare His Word. Declare, “I am more than a conqueror! I am the head and not the tail! I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!” As you meditate on His Word, your mind will catch up, and you will be in the position to receive all of the spiritual blessings He has prepared for you!
Today, I pray that we will overcome fear and discouragement and let our faith arise. I believe we can do all things through Christ Jesus because His Word says we can. Lord, help us to live fearlessly in the freedom You have given us and move toward our Promised Land, knowing that You are always with us.
