NEW CASTLE —
You can, you know.
You can do all those things — you can do EVERYTHING — through Him who GIVES you strength, Paul tells us in Philippians 4:13.
As he wrote about this gift of strength from the cold, damp, dirty floor of a prison cell, notice Paul didn’t say it covers a few things. Or some. Or many.
(When we rest in and enjoy the gift of grace and power.)
(When we try to justify ourselves through our own strength.)
In other words, believe it.
We’ve been given the power to choose.
