I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Today’s entertainment industry has its pantheon of mythology—gods born in the pages of comic books: Iron Man, Captain America, Spider Man, Wonder Woman, the Fantastic Four, Batman and, of course, the Man of Steel. Why are we so obsessed with superheroes? Perhaps we like to think there’s a little superhero inside each of us.
Superheroes are figments of the imagination, but supernatural strength is available to all of God’s children. We can say with the apostle Paul: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” That doesn’t mean we’re faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, or able to leap a tall building in a single bound. It means God will enable us to do all that He has called us to do and strengthen us in our inner being to accomplish His perfect will today. The Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).
Tackle today’s work in the strength He provides and trust Him to work powerfully within you.
Without Christ we can do nothing; but with Christ we can do all things!
John 3 – 4
