I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me – Philippians 4:13
The Apostle Paul had such a beautiful and powerful revelation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Imagine what he said in the verse above, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Notice he didn’t say, “some things” but “ALL things”; that means, no more weakness. Having embraced the Gospel of Christ, you’ve become invigorated with might for every task. There’s no place for timidity in your life. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
Romans 5:6 says, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Yes, before we received the Gospel, we may have been weak and timid; everything broke us and melted us; we gave up so easily and couldn’t face anything. We were easily discouraged, afraid and without strength; but when the Gospel came, and we embraced it, we were turned on from within by His divine power. Now, we’re bold and courageous; now we’re audacious in faith; we can face any crises and win.
If you were once reluctant or nervous about preaching the Gospel to others, maybe due to intense persecutions, tests, and trials that you faced, our opening verse lets you know you can do anything without fear. Be conscious that you’re not alone, and that you function by His might. Declare that you’re strengthened with might by God’s Spirit in your inner man.
No matter the oppositions that come against you, you can activate the miracle-working power of God in you by speaking fervently in other tongues. Jude 1:20 lets us know that when you speak in tongues you build up yourself from within; you’re strengthened to do the impossible. Be resolute to do big things for the Lord. God has granted you the ability in Christ.

Dear Father, I thank you for granting me, according to the riches of your glory, to be strengthened with might by your Spirit in my inner man. I declare that I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
