I Can Do Everything, God Asks Me To, With The Help Of Christ, Who Gives Me, The Strength And Power… The Bible

“Friends, always rejoice in the Lord! I never tire of saying it: Rejoice! Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come.

“Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for, and be glad about.

“Whatever you learned, received, heard and saw in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will walk with you.

“I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.  Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to get along happily whether I have much or little.

“I know what it is to survive in tight situations, and I know what it is to have plenty. In fact, I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want; I can do everything God asks me to, with the help of Christ, Who gives me the strength and power.

“And my God will meet all our needs, according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.  May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all!”
