Something To Ponder – Self Encouragement

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Philippians 4:13

Scripture reference to Verse :

9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ ‘s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Sharing my thoughts….. and an old acrostic. (wink)

Happy Friday! Encouragement from anyone, when we need it the most, is a beautiful thing.

Self-encouragement is powerful when we believe I can do all all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Have faith.

It’s trusting his grace is sufficient when we’re weak and to know the power of Christ rest upon us. That’s wisdom. Praise The Lord.

Abundant blessings and have a marvelous Friday and weekend!

The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

God gives us grace, as written in 2 Corinthians 12:10 – And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
