With Him, You Can

“Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. GOD, your God, is with you every step you take.”

Joshua 1:9 MSG

Today you may be faced with a task that looks way too big for you to tackle. 

God knows this.

He doesn’t intend for you to do it on your own or by yourself.

He intends for you to tackle it with Him.

To face the impossible challenge with Him.

To lean on His strength, His wisdom, His power to do it.

Should you face it?

Yes
.

Can you?


Yes
.

Why?


Because you are not alone in it.

You can do all things through the One who will strengthen you.

His name is Jesus and He is your Lord and Savior.

With Him, you can.

Difficult, Not Impossible

“That night all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud.” ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭14:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Why did the people of Israel weep?

Because 10 of the 12 spies that Moses sent into the promised land came back saying it was impossibleAnd the people believed them instead of believing God.

They mourned as if they were already defeated when in truth, they had not even begun.

This nation of former slaves looked at the promised land in fear because it was going to be difficult.

They wanted the promise but only if God was going to make it easy for them.

Stepping into your promised land isn’t going to be easy.

You are going to have to fight for it, face the giants and trust God to take you to a new level of trust in Him.

God has brought you this far and He will take you all the way in.

Getting there is going to be one step of faith after another.

It will always be a walk of faith.

You can trust God to give you what you will need when you will need it to do what He has called you to do.

It is difficult but not impossible.

Wipe your tears, lace up your shoes and go for all God has for you.

Being Content 

  
Being content with where you are and what you have, has nothing to do with where you are and what you have.

It is knowing that all things are not good but that God will use all things for your good.

It is knowing that your relationship with God does not depend on how you feel but in what Jesus did on the cross.

“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 all this through him who gives me strength.” (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭12-13‬ NIV)

Being content is a choice, not a feeling. 

It is knowing that no matter what life hands you, Christ is in you and He will give you the strength to handle whatever life brings.
