The Inside Life
Text: I can do all things through Him who strengthens me Philippians 4:13
The journey of life can be stressful sometimes; it makes you wonder if there is God at all or if God is ever on your side.
Life is full of many trials, difficult times. The struggle we go through daily sometimes can make one lose focus and start thinking about unhealthy things which would make our spirit down. But the truth is life is not easy; we need to recognise that fact. The book of Ephesians 6:12 makes it clear that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Yes, some forces don’t want things to go smoothly for you, especially if you are doing the will of God. Having broken free from the grip of the devil, they sure would want to bring you down with the struggle of life.
Paul recognises that there are struggles in life. Philippians 4:12; he knows the fact that there are times your needs might not be met and there are times your needs are met, there are times things might not be going smoothly, and there are times things go smoothly. These are all inside life.
But no matter how hard or difficult things may sometimes be, always put your trust in God who says you shouldn’t worry about anything but you should just ask and it shall be given unto you. Still draw strength from God in the days of trials, and you shall come out strong and victorious. For you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
