How do you forgive the spouse that was abusive or unfaithful to you? How do you move past the agonizing pain of losing a loved one? How can a person summon the strength to witness to a complete stranger?
The answer to these questions (and many more like them) can be found in the infallible, inerrant, perfect and pure Word of God. God knew His creation would struggle with these issues, and He lovingly supplied the answer - Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
The key to applying this verse correctly to your life is understanding that "all things" refer to the things in life God expects us to follow. For example: You can't apply this verse to robbing a bank, or winning a bet at the casino.
As always, using Scripture to interpret Scripture, the apostle Peter helps shed some light on what the apostle Paul was referencing - 2 Peter 1:3, "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:"
So whenever you are struggling to put into practice a biblical concept like forgiveness, joy in the midst of pain, or conquering fear, remember that God has given you every tool you need to be successful in your Christian life!
