YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippians 4:13).
What a glorious confession by the Apostle Paul in the verse above! What a mentality! Have you come to that point where you know that nothing is impossible unto you? You can do all things through Christ! It’s your heritage as a child of God, because He’s made you sufficient in His sufficiency.
Notice that Paul didn’t say, “I can do all things, because I’m so intellectually endowed”; no. It’s not about you; it’s about Christ: who He is in you, and His ministry in, and through you. If Paul could do all things through Christ, then having received Christ, you should affirm the same: “I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me.” It should be a consciousness by which you live every day.
The more you’re conscious of it, and affirm it, the more you programme yourself with the abilities of Christ. Suddenly, you’ll discover wonderful talents—uncanny abilities—unleashed from within you for things you never knew you could do.
You’ll birth new dreams and create new frontiers and vistas of success for the Kingdom and in the world. Never confess inability, for you’re able to do all things. You’re up to any task.
Never see yourself as weak. Christ, the anointed One and His anointing, dwells in you in His fullness. Therefore, there’s no impossibility with you. Jesus said, …verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith”*_ (Mark 11:23). The Word says you can; therefore, don’t sell yourself short.
Rise up to the abilities of the Word of God in your spirit, and nothing shall be impossible to you. Glory to God!
I’m alive to God, spirit, soul and body. Christ is in me; therefore, I’m loaded with limitless potentials and possibilities. Christ is my ability, my competence, and my all; I can do all things in His Name. Nothing is impossible to me, because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. Hallelujah!*
Colossians 1:26-27 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
2 Corinthians 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] of God;
