I Lift Up My Soul

Dr. Charles Stanley

Applying Truth For Victory

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

In grasping a clear picture of how we can weather the dangers that come

with both victory and defeat, we must not forget to apply what we know.

Understanding that God is our strength in weakness is one thing, but

applying that truth in an effective way is another.

The apostle Paul said he had learned the secret of contentment in

any situation-Christ, the source of strength (Phil. 4:11-13). We must

do more than just acknowledge God's awesome power-we need to get it

into our lives. We must submit our will to His will. Asking God to give

us strength to accomplish our will results in burnout. God never promises

us strength for our own plans, only for His. That's why submitting to His

will is the first step to seeing His power begin to permeate our lives.

We must also trust Him to control our circumstances for His purposes.

Once we realize that God's plans and purposes are greater than we

could imagine, we also have to realize that the path He is leading us down

will result in His glory.

The result of relying on God's strength is that we cease to struggle

against that which we cannot control. And victory is found in trusting in

the Lord's strength.

Heavenly Father, I trust Your strength as I face the challenges of life today.

I praise You because I will walk in victory. Amen
