I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.

I’ve been reading this verse wrong for decades.

Since my Grace revelation I’m reading it in a completely new way.

I’ve always read this verse as:

“I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.”

I used to stress ‘everything’.

I can do everything. Nothing can stop me. I am in Christ, therefore I can do anything. Achieve everything.

But now, through the eyes of Grace, the verse has become so clear.

Paul isn’t saying he can achieve anything and everything, he’s saying he doesn’t have to do stuff on his own anymore, or in his own strength.

He can do everything through Christ.
