Everything Through Christ

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:11-13 NLT)

You often hear quoted Philippians 4:13 “For I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (KJV).”  Verses 11 and 12 tells us why he trusted and leaned on Christ.  Paul had everything this world has to offer, riches, prestige, a good position, people looked up to him and respected him.  When he gave his heart to the LORD all that changed.  He didn’t always know where his next meal would come from.  He was beaten and put into prison.  He was shipped wrecked.  He was bit by a poisonous snake.  Whatever his circumstances were, he rejoiced in the LORD knowing that Christ would give him the strength that he needed.  Whatever your situation is, know that the POWER of Christ will sustain you.  He will provide the strength you need for all situations.
