Relying on God’s Strength

dec 10“I can do ALL things through Christ, who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)

Do you ever wish you could “clone” yourself? One could go to work, one could go shop and cook, one could be responsible for field trips, extra-curricular activities and homework, one could rest and be ready to greet everyone with a cheery attitude. And at least right now – one could do Christmas shopping and wrap packages!

Sound great? Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen that way. We all deal with most of those priorities every day as we try to figure out which are going to be the top to bottom on the list! Sometimes all our plans are thrown out the window with the first telephone call begging for immediate help. How can we cope? Not easily, for sure! But relying on Christ to help us with those things that matter most certainly defines our character and having a flexible, cheerful attitude is a necessary response.

When I was homeschooling my young children “flexibility” was my most used word. “Don’t major on the minors” was also necessary to remember. “People matter more than tasks” was a third. And my favorite was, “If you won’t remember it in twenty years, let it go!” Satan likes nothing more than to see us so busy that we have no time for God, reading our Bible, or taking time to fellowship with friends and family. Make time each morning to give your day to God, to order it as He sees fit, and then rely on His strength.

“Oh, Father, we need You in our daily lives, to see clearly the things that are important–not from our perspective, but from Yours! Give us wisdom to discern what we need to be doing, that we may be about “our Father’s business!” Help us see life from Your eyes, Lord, so that we can bring glory to You!”

For His Glory
