Empowered

20140313-054416.jpg

I don’t know what today may bring.

I have a pretty good idea and a long to- do list, but there will be situations I don’t see coming and challenges I’m not prepared for.

That is why I need this verse and the truth of it:

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”

(Philippians 4:13 AMP)

You don’t need to be superwoman or superman, nor were you ever created to be (sorry to burst your bubble).

You are only human.

You can’t do everything but with Christ you can be ready and empowered for anything.

I love the amplified version here because there are days that a lot of things “are amplified” like my humanness, my weakness, my insecurities, and my inabilities.

I don’t have to deny that. In fact, it is when I admit I am weak that I am able to embrace and walk in God’s available strength.

May your inner self be filled up and empowered by the amazing grace of God. May you admit your weaknesses and glory in his strength. May you rest in his love and by your example, empower others to do so as well.

Have a wonderful, empowered day!
