Philippians 4:13 – Am I Believing In or Giving In or Giving Up?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 Belief lies in what I do, not what I think.

If I truly believed that I can “do all things”, why am I so filled with the noise of my own thoughts that I’m not listening to the opportunities that surround me every day? Belief lies in what I do, not what I think.

If I truly believed that I can “do all things”, why am I not quieting my thoughts to discover what my boss needs … what my best friend needs … what the children around me need … what my friends and neighbors need? 

Belief lies in what I do, not what I think.

If I truly believed that I can “do all things”, would I waste my time with hatred … would I waste my time intentionally hurting people with my words or deeds … would I waste my time misleading or manipulating other people?

Belief lies in what I do, not what I think.

The bible says, “I can do all things” not “I can think all things.” When events occur, my thoughts do not merely report on those events, my thoughts interpret those events for me. When I realize that, the words from the bible take on even more meaning because they contain amazing wisdom. Belief lies in what I do, not what I think.
We are all in this together. We all have a different part to play. We all want to do the best with what we have. We all want to offer a helping hand to those around us. 

Belief lies in what I do, not what I think. Is it “I can do all things by myself”? Or, is it “We can do all things togther if each of us does everything that Christ has asked us to do”?

Am I believing in, giving in, or giving up? Belief lies in what I do, not what I say.
