I can do all things through him who strengthens me.—Philippians 4:13
Contrary to popular belief, this verse has nothing to do with God giving us superhuman strength needed to get what we want to bring attention to ourselves. The author is not preaching a gospel of positive self-talk that results in him achieving the next big win. Instead, Paul, the author of this text, is in prison looking down the pike of long-term suffering and realizes that he is going to need godly strength to endure. So what he's doing is preaching to himself and the people to whom he's writing about the endurance and strength required to rely upon God on the long road ahead.
Is your road long? Do you need more endurance? Preach to yourself, and ask for God's daily provision.
DO THIS: Ask for God's provision.
PRAY THIS: God, give me today the strength I need for today!
