This is an excerpt from my book “Walking In God’s Path Toward Your Destination Volume 1” To Change Your Mindset.
“I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengthened Me.” (PHILIPPIANS 4:13, KJV)
This is one of my favorite scriptures in the Holy Bible. This is a confirmation that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Whatever what we are dealing with God will help us. We have to realize that regardless how bad the situation is, it’s only a temporary situation. In this particular scripture “Philippians 4:13” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. With that Good News we should believe in that every day. It didn’t say little things or half things but all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. For some of us that we always worry about things that we can’t control. We don’t have faith in Christ and always think the worse could happen to us. We are scare that we are going to fail. We got to have faith in ourselves that we can achieve in anything that we want. We have to remember that with faith, knowing that the impossible will be possible without seeing it just by believing it.
We have to speak in our mind that I can do all things through Jesus Christ. We got to have a positive mindset to succeed in life. Inner conversation determines outer results. Watch what you say to yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something when the bible says you can do all things through Christ. You know us as Christian we have to stop talking about Faith when we don’t have anything to back it up. We have to stop saying we have in Faith In God at all when most of us have doubt him for whatever reason it may be in life that we ask him. The Bible Say “FAITH WITHOUT WORKS ARE DEAD.” (James 2:26,KJV)
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand and caught him, and said unto him, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? (Matthew 14:31, KJV) Secondly we know there are a lot of people in the cemetery we care so much about are there. So what is going wrong in our Churches today as I can see for myself people have gave up on God and what little Faith they have. But I want to thank god for the faith he gave unto me. I could personally attest to this statement. I was going through a personal challenge in my life and I thought my life was over but with my Faith in God I can testify that not only that my life is not over, also he had show me that when one door is closed another door will open for you. You just got to believe in that. Just because things doesn’t go your way that’s doesn’t mean that you are a failure. Sometimes God have a better plan for you. We should not let a job or education define us. We have so many talents or gifts that we doesn’t realized what we have. That’s why it is so important to follow your passions. Life is a gamble. You got to take those “big chances”, even if you go broke; you’ll recover for sure…that’s living life. I had gotten this quote from my friend Dartel McRae who is a talented Actor in the New York City area. It’s have a lot of truth. If you don’t take risk or chances you will never know what you can achieve. Even if it doesn’t work out you are not a failure because you had tried. It’s just like playing the lottery. They always say that for you to win that big prize you have to be in it to win it. If you don’t play the lottery then you won’t win it at all. That goes for taking chances for your dream. You have to make it happen and speak it in your life that I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me.
You can bounce back from anything. We all have to deal with trials and tribulations. “And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me. “Therefore are they which came out of great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters. And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:14-17, KJV) “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; But rejoice in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”(1 Peter 4:12, KJV) You have been through a lot but you are still standing for a reason.“Now thanks be Unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledgeby us in every place.”(2 Corinthians 2:14, KJV) Even we go through with our problems we still have to Praise Him in Advance for us to receive our blessings. You may lose your job, your home, having problem with your finances or dealing with sickness but you can bounce back. What we are dealing with is only a test. We have gone through a test to see how we can overcome our struggles. We can’t give up because what we are dealing with is only a temporary situation.
There is one word that we have to learn not use in our vocabulary. That word is “Impossible”. Impossible means that it is not possible, not able to be done or it’s difficult. We have to learn not keeping on telling ourselves that we can’t achieve anything. That is not true. If we have the determination, we can do anything that we put our mind to. Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is Impossible, but with God all things are Possible.” (Mathew 19:26, King James Version) In Christ everything that we want to achieve in our life it is possible. Just like in Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Jesus Christ. We have to believe it and claim it in our daily life. There must be a Yes I Can attitude mindset. To have that mindset we must take out negative words out of our vocabulary. If you take the word Impossible and take out the letters “IM” you will turn that word to “Possible.” Same with the word can’t and take out the letter “t” you will change that to “Yes You Can.” If you take those letters of those two negatives words you will make the first step of changing the way of thinking. You will have confidence in yourself. My friend Gloria smith had told me the message she got from the word “Impossible” that “I’m possible”. If you change that word around you will get a new message out of that word. “Everything is possible for him who believes” (Mark 9:23, KJV)
