He Will Do What He Wants To Do (by Mark Thornbrugh)
I can do all things through Christ which strengthenth me. Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
To say, “I can do all things” begs the question, “Like what?” Does that mean that any plan or scheme I devise will succeed? Definitely not! Someone once said, “Although Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, He is under no obligation to finish what He did not author.”
To boldly declare, I can do all things through Christ requires knowledge of what is to be done. Such an understanding comes only through the Word of God and through prayer.
Paul’s ability to adjust to constantly changing circumstances, and yet still effectively minister, is a direct result of the sustaining power of Christ in his life. However, to serve as a conduit for the plan and purpose of God, we must know the plan and purpose we are to carry out.
Paul also admonishes us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to “Pray without ceasing.” This maintenance of an attitude and atmosphere of the presence of God is the only way to consistently know His will in daily ministry. When we know our directed tasks, then we also know the outcome. I can, because the Lord has said He will!
Father, prayer doesn’t change anything – You do! Direct my heart to pray for Your will – that You may be glorified in my life and in my church.
