“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction” (Philippians 4:13).

I can do nothing without the Lord.  When all is said and done, everything done apart from Him will mean nothing.  Everything He does is forever.  You can do all things through Him who gives you a new life by grace.  As His child, do what pleases Him.  Come into the light and walk in the eternal things and no longer scheme as those who do not believe, do.  Live in the life of Christ.

Lord, this is so simple to say.  I see it, but how hard it is to do in daily life.  Each day has its temptations, and I am tugged and pulled to live in the way of the world.  Help me learn how to be strengthened in You and live into the life You give, knowing that only in You is there hope and a future.  Guide me in the way of life that looks to You for all things knowing that only this new life You give really matters.

Lord Jesus, You came so that we would have abundant and everlasting life.  Let me learn how to follow You such that I do not turn back to the fleeting ways of this world.  Guide me in Your goodness and mercy to see through the temptations of this world.  Help me live in the goodness You give now and forever.  You are the way, truth, and life.  Help me do all things through You.  Amen.
