Verse Of The Day : I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4 : 13
LISTEN : Starting off your day in victory will make you never to recognise any form of Impossibility. People are often limited by what they believed to be an impossible thing. But scripture tells us that faith makes all things possible. Faith brings us up to where God is. The realm God dwells is the realm of possibilities; and no one can access that realm without faith. The Bible says, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1 : 37). Beloved, when God is involved everything is possible. Thankfully, we can tap into such privilege of possibilities by faith in God. You may ask, how? When a man whose son was tormented by demonic spirit came to Jesus for the healing of his son, after His (Jesus) disciples could not heal him; he narrated his ordeals to Jesus, and the Bible says, “And frequently it has cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if you can do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” (Mark 9 : 23).
This is great! This simply means that you cannot be limited by any circumstance if your faith is alive and active. Our problem is not if God can do what we ask, but if we can believe what we ask. Where there is no faith certain problems are accepted as insurmountable; but where faith reigns, they fade away like flowers. Beloved, are you prepared to work on your belief system? Until that is done, you will not experience the power of possibilities. Friend, no matter what you are going through, like Apostle Paul in our verse of the day, you can learn to say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Besides, determine to lean on God the source of supernatural strength and ability. Be wise!

1. Determine to never be limited by any circumstance no matter what.
2. Do not lean on your own understanding, rather lean on God’s power.
