A friend gave me a gift yesterday. With it was a beautiful cardstock with the words:
I hadn’t really given a lot of prayer or thought to my “one word” for the new year. Yet, as I read these words, the Lord flashed through my soul: “You have come to know how beautiful I made you and how worthy you are through My Son. This year I want to show you how very capable you are when you partner with Me.”
Then a verse came to mind immediately: “I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 NLT
Really? Everything? Yes, everything! Why everything? Because I have committed everything I do to Him and I trust Him to help me. (Psalms 37:4)
I. AM. CAPABLE.
Father, guide lead and direct me this year where to lay my hands. I trust in You. I am committed to You. Thank You for making me beautiful, worthy AND capable. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, my Savior. Amen.
