Can you really do all things through Christ?

One of the most powerful and perhaps, most popular verses in the Bible is found in Philippians 4:13:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The problem is that a lot of people have the wrong understanding of this verse and as a result, misapply them in their lives.

As inspiring it may sound, Philippians 4:13 doesn’t mean that you can do anything and everything that you want to do.

First off, if you read the whole chapter, the context is clear that Paul was saying that he can endure any suffering as long as Yahshua or Christ is strengthening him!

It’s not about us doing whatever we want and invoking Christ’s help so that we can achieve anything we want in life.

Moreover, Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do anything and everything as long as Yahshua gives us the strength we need.

Philippians 4:13 is not about having financial abundance. It’s not about doing what we want. Most importantly, it’s not about bending God to our will.
