“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
Beloved, all things means all things. No exceptions! Being able to do all things means there are no limitations, no hindrances. You must tell yourself, I can do all things in my academics, job, business, family life and ministry. Let’s look at our text from the Message translation: “Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.” From this translation, you can see that the “I can” mentality is derivable from the One who makes you who you are. John 1:12 clearly says who you are in Christ. God was not playing on words when He said “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” Beloved, you are not going to become: you are the son of God. The devil keeps fighting this truth so that he can keep you intimidated, confused and put down even though you are the Son of God. Can you imagine the son of the President going about on the street with his shoulders dropping, his eyes down and looking every bit a failure? Of course not! The very fact that he is the son of the President confers on him a certain level of authority and grants him certain privileges. Not for who he is in himself, but for whose son he is.
Beloved, all truth is parallel. If the son of the President will walk with some springs in his feet with his head up, how much more you, the son of the King of kings and the Lord of lords? Child of God, square up your shoulders, raise your head up high, you are the covenant child of the covenant keeping God. From today, decide that there would be no limitations or impossibilities with you no matter what the enemy throws at you and you will see God move on your behalf in a dimension you have never seen before. Remember that you can do all things through Christ. And praying is part of that ability. You must pray until something shifts in the realm of the spirit. God has gone ahead of you to make crooked paths straight so decide to stand in there until you receive the favour of the King. You will not be denied in Jesus name.
