Philippians 4:13

This verse is commonly misused. It does not mean that because we believe, we can succeed in all of our endeavors. It is true that we can accomplish great things through Jesus, but that is not what Philippians 4:13 means. It means that, through Christ, we can be content in all things– through trials, pain, illness, long nights, family dysfunction, abuse, neglect– because we can take comfort and find our hope in the fact that He alone is enough. We are loved by a perfect Father who sees all our brokenness yet delights in calling us His own! Now, that’s a reason to smile… 🙂
