Chosen by God!
“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8:35-37 NLT)
The Word is always our way out and onto victory. We may not be able to do it, whatever "it" is, but we can do it with Jesus as our strength and He has already guaranteed our victory in all things!
My favorite go to Scripture for this is:
"I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]." (Philippians 4:13 AMPC)
I picture Jesus' strength dripping into me just like a blood transfusion. Life is in the blood, both naturally and spiritually. A blood transfusion saves lives. Jesus’ spilled blood also saves lives.
I have to remember that while I may not want to do it, I can do it! I cannot use I can't do it as long as I’m connected to Jesus and it’s in His will, His Word, for me to do it. It's a choice I must make daily. Today I choose to do it in His strength.
