There are many things in life that we say we can’t do. It is true that there is much that we cannot do by ourselves.
However, as children of God we must remember that we are not alone.
“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
“…Jesus said to them, ‘With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”” (Matthew 19:26)
“And Jesus said to him, ” ‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.”” (Mark 9:23)
“And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You…” (Mark 14:36)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.” (Ephesians 3:20)
Dear Father in Heaven, help us to believe that all things are possible with You. Help us dear God not to give up. Help us to believe in Your power. Help us to put our trust in completely in You. In the Name of Jesus we pray, amen.
