YOU CAN

That thing you’re going through? Yes, you can. You think you can’t, but you can. You’ve endured this far, and can continue. I belive in you. You think the battle is in your body, but it’s not. The real battleground is your mind–that is where the enemy relentlessly attacks.

Yes, these things wear on us, grind us down, but God…

But God has made you:

Luminous
Beautiful
Powerful
Strong

You are more than this. You shine with the radiance of our Father, and are more than a conqueror.

So don’t tell me you can’t when all the power, splendor, majesty, glory–in short, every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus are at your fingertips. Yes, it’s hard, but so was Christ’s passion. God will likewise bring you through–not without pain, but without stain.

Hold fast, dear one, hold on. I love you.

More importantly, God loves you. He believes in you so much that he’s put his reputation on the line. How you endure hardship before the world’s watching eyes reflects on his character.

You’ve got it in you to pull through, because God himself put it there. So press on to victory, child of the Most High.

You can.

  • Reading my mind today, Chad -- just what I needed to hear. Thanks for delivering an almost prophetic encouragement to me

    • Chris, I needed to hear it, too.

    “So press on to victory, child of the Most High. You can.” Love the way you ended the post! Too often we forget about the victory that God already offers us in Jesus. He gives us power, especially when we are weak.

    • Thanks so much! It’s easy to forget in sight of… that the victory is already won.
