I can do all things?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)  Is this true?  Is it true the way it is often understood?  The 400 prophets (1 Kings 22) were making a modern mistake as they encouraged Ahab to go to war against Syria.   Like many in our day, they believed that “all things are possible with God” equals “all things are advisable to God”.  Not True.  Christians are not free to “dream any dream” and expect God’s help in accomplishing it.  Our faith is not synonymous with unlimited optimism.  What the Great God does promise is to assist strongly all endeavors that rise from His own heart and wisdom.  The first task of prayer is not speaking, it is listening.  Today, as you pray the Lord’s prayer, will you hear His counsel re. the kind of requests and attitude of heart that God will hear and honor? PS. I am back from youth camp.  Thank you for your prayers.  Looking forward to seeing you Sunday.  Don
