I always laugh when I hear some believers quoting Apostle Paul concerning what he said in Philippians 4:13 that; “He can do all things through Christ who strengthens him..”
The truth of the matter is, that Paul never woke up and said that. Apostle Paul passed through a lot of challenging moments and afflictions. And this made him bold to make such a declaration. Look at what He said before making such a statement;
I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need… (Philippians 4:12)
Did you just read that? It’s very laudable to know the “fires and waters” he went through!
Beloved, what makes you think you are the only person going through what you are going through now?
You aren’t the only person and you won’t also be the last person! Don’t be deceived!
The Christian journey isn’t easy at all. It isn’t soft as the majority are now teaching and preaching! Your walk with Christ is a battle you must fight! It’s a decision you must make!
Remember what Jesus said;
And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10: 22KJV
Beloved, what’s needed from you is to endure what you are going through now!
Don’t turn to the left or right! Just remain focused on Christ and surely you shall testify of His Goodness as Apostle Paul said.
What’s life without stories? Apostle Paul just energized us with his! Don’t worry, you are next in line to inspire your generation with yours.
