Philippians 4:13 WEB

I can do all things through Christ,
who strengthens me.

Promise #130: You can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives you strength.

In yesterday's promise, we talked about the kingdom principle of weakness. In today's promise, we talk about the kingdom principle of strength. The reality is that they are one in the same. In Philippians 4:13, the Apostle Paul makes the bold declaration that he can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens him.

The reason that Paul could say that nothing is impossible is because he had learned the secret that his own strength was made perfect in his weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:1-10) If we are leaning on our own abilities, then we can only do what we have the personal strength to do. If we realize the secret of our strength comes from us being empty of our own self-effort, then we will realize that there are no boundaries, barriers or limitations because Jesus knows no boundaries, barriers or limitations.

No matter what life throws at us, we are more than conquerors through Him who has loved us. (Romans 8:37) If we embrace the humility of a childlike heart and understand that true strength does not originate with us but with Christ that lives in us, then we will believe that we can truly live an impossible life. May each one of us see the incredible power and strength that is available because we can do all things through our elder brother Jesus, who gives us His power and strength to overcome in every situation.

Have a blessed day!!

Romans 8:26 WEB

In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses,
for we donít know how to pray as we ought.
But the Spirit himself makes intercession for us
with groanings which canít be uttered.

Promise #129: My Spirit will help you in your weakness.

The KJV Bible says that the Spirit helps us in our infirmities when we don't know what to pray for. The NIV Bibles says that the Spirit helps us in our weakness. Today's promise brings good news to everyone who has every felt weak and uncertain of what to pray for. I find it very comforting to know that the Holy Spirit that lives inside of me, is ready, willing and able to help me in my greatest moments of weakness.

But what about the times when I feel strong? What is the role of the Spirit of the living God when I am walking in my own strength? Is He helping me then or is He just waiting for me to be reminded once again that apart from Jesus I can do nothing? (John 15:5) I believe that one of the greatest principles of the kingdom is the principle of weakness. As the Apostle Paul discovered in 2 Corinthians 12:1-10, when he was weak, then he was strong because God's grace was made perfect in his weakness.

If you are feeling weak today, be encouraged! The Spirit of the living God that lives in you will help you in your greatest times of weakness and will even pray through you the words that need to be spoken to the Father when you don't have the words to pray. May each one of us receive a deeper revelation of the glorious kingdom principle of weakness today.

Have a blessed Thursday!

Matthew 8:16-17 WEB

16 When evening came, they brought to him many possessed with demons.
He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick;
17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet,
saying: ďHe took our infirmities, and bore our diseases.Ē

Promise #128: My Son took upon Himself all your sicknesses and diseases.

Jesus took upon Himself every sickness and every disease that mankind has ever experienced so that we could be healed. I cannot imagine the unfathomable price that Jesus paid for today's promise to become a reality for us in our generation.

In the Garden of Gethsemane as Jesus was sweating great drops of blood, He cried out to His Abba (Father) for the strength to drink from the cup that would pave the way to our redemption. It was at this crucial time in history that Jesus took upon Himself ALL our sin and exchanged ALL our brokeness for ALL of His life. I believe that only the Holy Spirit can bring revelation to us so that we can grasp in part the incredible sacrifice that Jesus paid so that we could become heirs of His glorious inheritance.

May God give all of us the grace today to comprehend the fact that Jesus took upon Himself all of our sickness so that we could be healed. May faith rise in our hearts today so that each one of us could appropriate the finished work of the cross in every area of our body and our soul that still needs to be healed. Thank you Jesus for saying 'yes' to your Father and drinking the terrible cup of the brokeness of humanity so that we might be made whole...spirit, soul & body. Hallelujah, what a Savior!

Bless someone this day!

Psalm 119:105 WEB
Your word is a lamp to my feet,
and a light for my path.

Promise #127: My Word will brighten your steps and light your path.

Have you ever walked on a path in the forest in the middle of the night without a flashlight? If you have and there wasn't a full moon shining, it is a pretty difficult thing to manuevre. Without a light to guide the way, you will inevitably go off the path and at the very least, bump into a tree.

I believe the psalmist in today's promise is saying the same thing about the importance of God's Word for you and me. In the grand scheme of things, we are only little boys and little girls who need all the help we can get. We do not have the navigational tools to manage our own life. We need both the written Word of God and the timely spoken Word of God to guide us through this life.

It is comforting to know that our God and Father equips us with all we need to live a godly life including lighting our path as we take one step at a time. Notice that the psalmist doesn't say that God's Word lights the path miles in front of us. He says that God's Word is a lamp unto our feet.

May each one of us rejoice in the fact that God has committed the resources of heaven to guide us on our life's journey. He has not left us in the dark to try to fend for ourselves, but has focused His Word like a huge beam of light at our feet to guide every step we take.

Have a blessed day!

Numbers 6:25 WEB

Yahweh make his face to shine on you,
and be gracious to you.

Promise #126: My face will shine upon you all the days of your life.

We live in an area in Canada where it is very cloudy in the winter months. Sometimes we can go weeks without ever seeing the sun. When the sun does eventually come out, the feeling of exhilaration is almost indescribable. The gloomy feeling of gray skies day after day can really take its toll on a person's emotional wellbeing.

Today's promise is taken from the priestly blessing in Numbers 6 that the Lord told Moses to pray over Israel on a daily basis. In this blessing from the Lord, Moses tells the people that the face of the Lord will shine upon them all the days of their life. Can you imagine living every day of your life being aware of the brightness and warmth of our God and Father's countenance?

Even though clouds do come our way, we can rise above the clouds (just like we can in an airplane) and still see His face shining on us. My prayer today is that each and every one of us would feel the warmth of His love and the brightness of His face shining upon us. We are not called to walk this life alone. Our Father is watching over us every step of the way.
