I Can Do All Things

By Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

What is the secret to being content in any and every situation? Trusting in God’s redemptive power at work in you.

Read Philippians 4:10-13.

Joy dwells in the hearts of those who trust in God’s power, not their own. This is what Paul meant when he said, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).

Whether Paul was preaching to King Agrippa or a lowly Roman soldier, he was content because Christ enthroned his heart. The unlikely apostle had learned to say, “I can count on God’s power to give me strength to obey Him, to carry me through whatever I go through, and to make Christ my all-sufficiency.”

Paul delighted in the knowledge that Christ had taken hold of him and would never let him go. He recognized that he owed everything to God—his faith, strength, and every good fruit blossoming in his life. This led him to pursue the glorious promises of God, confident that Christ had provided for all his needs. And He did for you, too.

Today, take joy in the Lord—what He has done for you and is doing in you. Let that lead you to contentment in every situation so that you proclaim with Paul, “My God will meet all [my] needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

Prayer: Father, I trust You. You alone are worthy. You are love. You are good. You are sufficient for me. My hope is in You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:12-13).
