I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13 (NKJV)
I can because God says I can! It sounds audacious, sounds bold, sounds just like God. I believe God wants us to go around saying I can do it to everything in His word and everything He asks us to do. I can live by faith, I can be led by the Holy Spirit, I can be filled with the fulness of Christ everyday, I can triumph in all things, I can be victorious through Christ Jesus, I can live in divine health and prosper in all respects – I can and I will because God says I can! It is not arrogant, it is my faith and complete belief in God and in His word.
In the bible (Matthew 8:1-4) there was a leper of a leper who came to Jesus saying, ‘Master if you want to, you can heal my body.’ He knew Jesus had the power and ability to but he was unsure whether Jesus would heal him personally. Jesus settled the matter quickly for the man saying, ‘I want to. Be clean’ and he was healed of the leprosy. I say this because this is the heart of Jesus. He wants to, He wants you to have everything He has, He wants you to walk in your high places. He wants you to be everything and to experience everything in this amazing new covenant sealed in His blood. He wants to for you personally!
In life people are taught about limitations and told mostly about what they can’t do, what they can’t have and why. It could be the absence of a good or the right education, not knowing the right people or having the right connections, not fitting into the preconceived mould in the minds of people and so many other reasons. But God told me to tell you that YOU CAN because He wants to! You can do everything in His word, have everything He promised you and be everything you aspire to be for God. You can because God says you can!
So, it is time to silence every voice in your mind, including yours, that says you can’t. It could be the voice of someone from the past or recently that you hold in high esteem, the voice of someone close to you, someone who has known you since your childhood and who knows your history, someone who taught you, someone around you or even the voice of reason and feelings. I don’t care whose voice it is, God says it is time to silence them permanently, give them a decent burial because the Great I Am that I Am says you can! You can do it, you can achieve great things, you can be led by the Holy Spirit, you can pull down, build and establish for God, you can lead and you can achieve the desires and hopes that God has put in your heart for such a long time.There is so much power released when you believe you can and the bible says, ‘all things are possible to them that believe’ which is why the enemy tries to keep you thinking that you can’t. But God, the greater one who strengthens and enables you says You Can, so Believe God.
Who will you believe? I hope God! Whose word would you say is true? I hope God’s word! Because God says irrespective of the circumstances in your life, irrespective of what others may consider as limiting factors, irrespective of where you are, He says, ‘You have strength for all things in Christ who empowers you.’ Stay in Christ, believe in Christ because it is your faith in Christ that empowers you and gives you the strength for all the things you can do. Keep looking at yourself in Christ because that is the real you, and you look very different in Christ’s mirror. Nothing is impossible to them that believe in Christ! So stop saying I can’t and start saying I can do it all in Christ Jesus who empowers me.
