Pearls of Wisdom from Philippians 4: I Can Scale Walls

I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13

We don’t need spinach like Popeye. We don’t need to sew a red “S” on our chest like Superman. We don’t need to practice martial arts or learn to be a sharpshooter.

If you are a Christian, you have the greatest strength available to man. You have the Son of God on your side. Christ will give you the strength you need.

I really like Psalm 18:28-36. The last part of verse 29 says, With my God I can scale a wall. Think about that ,Christian sisters. We are God’s women. He will help us scale the walls of life.

The country song says, I never promised you a rose garden. Well, God never promised His children a rose garden. In fact, if you read 1 Peter 4 you will find the apostle talking about suffering. He tells us that those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

We will have trials and tribulations. Count on it. To scale that wall of despair you must depend on the strength Christ provides.

What wall do you need to scale today? Are you in a troubled marriage? Do your bills keep piling up? Have you or your husband lost a job? Does someone in your family have health issues? Do you fear the terrorists?

Christ is the answer. He may not remove the problem, but will exercise His power when you are weak. Jesus said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Dear Father, What a comfort to know that our God can do anything. Teach us to rely on
                        Your Son for strength, comfort, and wisdom.
