I Can Do All Things

A new prison was built in British Columbia, and the prisoners tore down the old one. While the cells had heavy doors and the windows steel bars, the walls had been made of paper and clay. A big push could have knocked them out. But the prisoners thought escape was impossible.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you feel as though you cannot escape? Maybe it is the grief over a lost loved one or maybe you are dealing with the consequences of sinful activities. You might be dealing with addictions, whether to alcohol, pornography or spending money you do not have. Whatever it is you are battling, if you allow God’s grace to transform your heart and change you, you will have the strength to combat any sin or temptation. Through Christ’s power, the same power that raised Christ from the dead, you can break the chains that are keeping you from having the life that God wants for you. Through Christ you can do all things.

Prayer: Lord, I give to You all my addictions and burdens that are holding me back. I pray that I will embrace You and Your everlasting love to help me change the habits in my life. Thank You for walking with me through every step of this process. In Your Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Philippians 4:13
