This passage from Rick Warren was part of an email message I received and I wanted to share.
I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me. Philippians 4:13 (GNT)
The key to a faith-filled life is not in trying harder. It’s not in psyching yourself up, but in relaxing in God’s grace, so he can do through you what he desires to do.
Paul says this: “I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me” (Philippians 4:13 GNT). Notice that it doesn’t say, “I have the strength for most conditions.” It says all conditions. That includes breaking bad habits and creating healthy ones.
