I was recently reminded of the Bible verse – Philippians 4:13 ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ It had been graffitied onto a post at the top of a hill…a hill with steep paths, rocky ground and winding roads.
If you’ve ever climbed or perhaps you’ve watched a film about a mountain climb, you’ll know there are many moments where your mind or your body tells you to stop and turn around. It will even try and convince you that you are close enough to the top and you don’t need to go any further.
Allow me to encourage your heart today; don’t give up, don’t quit and do not turn around and go back.
As your pursue your dreams and ambitions, and as you follow in faith the call of God, keep your eyes focused on the goal, the prize – the summit!
And remind yourself: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
A daily devotion for a better way of living.
