Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
God wants to show Himself strong on your behalf. Surrender to Him today and let the peace that He gives you take over. We cannot fully serve God without full surrender to his Strength.
Can You Do Without Christ?
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Paul had been imprisoned, suffered, and lived as an example of the Grace of Jesus Christ and left this testimony to the Church of Philippi and the saints at large. They were among the people who sent care packages, and Paul spoke as someone who appreciated everything but stated that he learned to be content in whatever state. Still, regardless of state he may encounter, he declared that he could do all things, as a living testimony, through Christ, who strengthens us.
Elohim Kedoshim, Holy God - Joshua 24:19; we humbly strive to bow our knees to give You thanks for the care You have placed upon us. We come in a spirit of oneness to praise You for the opportunity to appreciate the gifts of the saints wherein we abound. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who do all things through Christ, so that; only His strength will fulfill our needs. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
