God Says You Got What It Takes

Reading for the Day: Philippians 4:12-13

“I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

In life, you will have days that you feel unsure of yourself. It could be the fear of failure or even the fear of success. You don’t know if you have what it takes to do the job before you. Because we are human beings, this kind of thought pattern creeps into our daily living for Christ.

Even when God gives us something to do, we quietly question His logic in our minds. But you are not the first. Moses did the same thing. He stuttered when He spoke and questioned God at the burning bush for choosing Him to lead Israel out of captivity in Egypt.

Gideon questioned God’s choice when he was asked to fight the Midianites. He remarked that he was the least of his house in the smallest tribe of the twelve (Manasseh). That sounds like some of us.

It may be natural to doubt, but God comes prepared. He gives us one thing that makes all the difference – the Holy Spirit. He works from the outside in to prepare us for what God wants us to do. No matter what God places before you, you have what it takes to overcome the circumstances.

Prayer Suggestions: Take His strength as your own. Ask Him to protect your mind from negative thoughts that stop you from achieving His goals and reaping the bountiful blessings.
