You really can do hard things! In Philippians 4:13 it's spelled out for you very specifically: "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." Here's a few other  translations for context: Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. (

This scripture is your reminder that you can do anything that God has entrusted you to do. For more inspiration check out A Gift of Inspiration, Scripture Devotional Cards – Truepost Inc.

Now this scripture doesn't promise you that all your wishes will be granted just the way you want them. It doesn't promise that you won't have some troubles and setbacks along life's way. It also doesn't promise that your plans will be HIS plans and...this will be the hardest part, because your human side is always going to want things to go the way you plan them. But, that's just not the way God works.

This scripture should however, give you reassurance that you can do hard things, and that you should not quit even when you struggle or suffer a defeat. This scripture should serve as your reminder that when you include God in your plans, you can be confident that HE will make a way... even when you have doubts. Even when you struggle and hit roadblocks. Even when your not sure what HIS plans are. HE will give you the strength you need to keep on keepin' on!

God is calling you out into the deep, where HE doesn't call the qualified, HE qualifies the called. Your belief is what will release HIS power to work in you, and through you, to do great things for God. Your belief, is what will help you figure out what specific plans God has designed, just for you. 

Get still, pray over your plans and believe this scripture, because through Jesus you can achieve great things for HIS Kingdom and you can do hard things!

Read Romans 8:28-31
