What is the meaning of Philippians 4:13?
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. NAS
- The Immediate Action -
Just moments before, in verse ten of Philippians 4, Paul wrote: But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly and now at last your care for me has flourished. What was happening in his life at that moment? The apostle Paul, a disciple of Jesus, divinely inspired, wrote these amazing words while imprisoned in Rome awaiting trial for preaching the Truth. The congregation at the church Philippi, which Paul had helped plant, had sent a courier with gifts for him. The Roman prisons of his time were not accommodating by any standard. Paul looked forward to the gifts which could not come as frequently as needed. It was through these trials that he learned contentment. Paul had an amazingly positive attitude – ever so confident even while in such dank, disagreeable conditions. Paul had lived in wealth and privilege, leaving the comfort of his lifestyle to serve Jesus. His service for Jesus Christ brough extraordinary hardships. How did he excel, keep such a positive attitude and complete contentment? In, “Christ who strengthens me.” He looked to Jesus for satisfaction that resulted in contentment. The shackles and chains he was forced to wear while imprisoned must have been extremely heavy and burdensome, a constant reminder of his suffering, wants and needs. Yet he reminded himself, “I am capable because of Him (Psalm 23,34:7-9).
Christ who strengthens me is a challenge for all redeemed, living, working, and competing in this present age. When times are good and plentiful it is easy not to rely so much on Jesus. Some can even forget to pray or set aside time for prayer. Paul is encouraging the reader to be content in good, prosperous times and in times of need and want. It is Christ that strengthens the believer’s mind, body, and soul. Are you carrying the weight of life? Remind yourself that you are not alone, but by grace, Jesus Christ is with you.
