I can do all things...

When asked what their favorite verse is, a lot of people will say Philippians 4:13. When asked who wrote it and why, most will look at you clueless. This verse was one written by the apostle Paul, the same apostle who was stoned, beat, hated, and thrown in prison awaiting death and after all this, after all his tragedies and hardships, he wrote this verse. Why? After all of these things still remained sure that he could conquer all, that he would carry on, and most importantly that God was still be his side. What not a lot of people know is that this verse is the end to a very powerful statement by him, " I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. 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 everything through him who gives me strength." These are in words of a man awaiting death, a man who clearly had nothing to rejoice and he still chooses to be content and happy knowing he can DO ANYTHING with God. I don't know about you, but when faced with death I may have a little bit of doubts and fear, does it sound like he is experiencing any regret, fear, doubt, or even sadness. No, I don't think it does. He resolved within himself that he was going to stay positive and persevere through whatever the circumstances. What do you do when you are faced with something tragic? Do you become hopeless or do you become hopeful? Often in life our go to words are, I can't. I know I use these words quite a bit and every time I say them I realize how incredibly stupid they sound because in this verse those words are not visible. Those words do not appear and to me this verse sums up a lot of things in this life, like I don't know well, ALL THINGS. So why do we go straight to I CANT when we are not facing death, not being stoned, not having persevere through the impossible because these words imply that nothing is impossible with God. You may have cuts deeper than the Grand Canyon and memories you can't erase, Nothing is impossible for God. You may be going through divorce and thinking in your mind how your going to be alone again, You are never alone. You may be dealing with losing someone and may be almost out of hope, that's just it you are ALMOST out of hope. You can do ALL things through Christ who gives you strength. I went to "Google" and put in, with God all things are possible, 37 verses appeared speaking of how God can make all things possible and I would guarantee there even more than that.  There are quite a few things that could knock us completely off our feet and are hard for us to experience in this life, but the Bible is a very very long book and it's a book filled with verses about everything we can experience in this life and more. Here are a few more,  
Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”
Mark 9:23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”
I attached the link so that you can go to this site and read the 37 I found:) 
So next time you start to say the words, I can't. You should think of Paul and how even faced with death he was still filled with hope that he could do all things with God. Just the thought of the day. :)))
