Ever feel you’ve seen a quote or Bible verse so many times that you think you’re pretty clear on what it means? Or maybe you’ve heard it over and over and think you’ve got a handle on how it applies to your life and business, but then you read it anew and it’s like the words jump off the page in bright colors? 🙋🏼♀️
Yep, me too. And this one here just hit me earlier in the year.
I don’t remember where I read this, but it was brilliant and I thought you’d like it too. The author I can’t remember said “let’s examine Philippians 4:13 for a new perspective on being able to do all things through Christ:
I can means I am empowered to
Do means Perform the necessary action
All things means The spiritual and practical work
Through means Come in one side and go out the other
Christ means The Anointed One (The One Who I go THROUGH)
When we put it all together, we create a powerful, memorable translation of what it means to go through Christ:
“I am empowered to perform the necessary action for my spiritual and practical work because I can come into the anointing (spiritual) before I go out into the world (practical).”
I mean, c’mon somebody! If that’s not EXACTLY what pursuing success God’s way looks like, I don’t know what does! I hope this empowers you today, on this first Friday of a new month, and tag 3 friends that could use this message too!👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
