Yes I Can, Right?

Updated on October 1, 2011

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


What an awesome scripture! Can you imagine how your life would be different if you had an "I Can Do" attitude in everything you face in life? It would have a powerful affect on your life.

Yet according to the Word of God, it is declared that we really can do all things through Christ. What exactly does that mean? While I am probably not the sharpest person around I simply understand it to mean that I can do anything that needs to be done.

Every person reading this article has something in their life that they are facing. Difficulties and challenges come against us on a consistent basis. What ends up happening is that we focus more on the problem then on the solution.

Let's use a dumb analogy, but one that has probably happened to most of us. You take your car to the car wash and have it cleaned. Then on the way home a bird targets you. All of the sudden on your clean windshield is bird poop. What do you do?

While it is an irritating event since you just cleaned your car you probably don't get too stressed over it. When you arrive home you get a paper towel and some cleaner and within a moment of time your windshield is clean.

Do you know why you don't get overly stressed in this situation? Because you know how to easily fix it. Now think of an event in your life that has really weighted heavy on you. The reason it weighted so heavy on you is because you didn't know how to fix it.

The reason we miss the power of this verse is because of how we have developed our thinking. We rely upon what we know and when we encounter things that we are not knowledgeable we have a tendency to freak out!

But what Paul is saying is that there should never be a time when you freak out because Christ lives within you and you have access to what He knows. You have access to His ability. Therefore, there will never be anything that you will ever face that you can't handle.

Don't confuse two words as you read this article. I did not say that you will "want" to handle it, I said that you can handle it. What you can handle and what you want to handle are two different things. Herein lies a major problem. Because we face obstacles that we don't want to deal with our attitude is not set for victory, but for comfort.

Comfort should not be our goal. We will have comfort in heaven. Our goal on this earth is to "press toward the mark of the high calling." That high calling is to obtain victory in every area of our life and to complete our assignment before we go to heaven.

One of the key components of how affective our faith works is determined by our attitude. Do you have an "I Can Do It" attitude? If not, you need to develop one. Jesus did not die so we could just get by. He wants us to demonstrate His power in this earth on a daily basis. Change the way you look at things and press toward you victory.
