CAPACITY THROUGH CHRIST | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Beloved  the Bible reveals God’s intention to make His saints attain some heights that seems lofty and incredible or unimaginable. But then if you will arise and believe the infinite and invincible one that gave the promise, then for you, attaining  incredible things will be seamless for you in Jesus name.
Get to know some facts about God, your loving Father and then reach out to the lofty promises He gave  His  saints and you in particular.
See what the Bible says about God your own Father and you haveHis DNA in you  to function in the same capacity or after His order.
God is a Spirit and God , so He could do all things.

John 4:24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Always remember, redemption does not just make you spiritual but a spirit after the order of God, you have His DNA in you,

John 3:6-8. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

The fact remains that God is a spirit and God with infinite attributes. You also by your virtue of redemption has become a spirit and god with infinite attributes too. You need not feel like it. Just believe it, as the Bible has revealed it.  See what God has promised you, because you are a spirit and god like Him and you are His sons and daughters.

Psalms 82:6. I have said, Ye are gods;  and all of you are children of the most High.

John 10:35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

Isaiah 40:29 -31. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 41:10: ¶Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 45:24: Surely, shall one say, in the LORDhave I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

Beloved, when you receive the strength of God, then you begin to function in the capacity that makes you to do all things, like He did. All that God did in creation were creative exploits. He wants you to believe Him and begin to do exploits like Him .

2 Chronicles 20:20: ¶And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

Believe these promises and even you can attain any incredible height for His glory through His strength. See the two promises.

Daniel 11:32. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

These two promises made Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Paul etc to did  exploits and you too shall begin to function in this same  capacity from now on in Jesus name.
1. Moses:

Deuteronomy 34:10-12. And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, In all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.

2; Joshua :

Joshua 10:12-13. Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed,  until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

3. Elijah:

James 5:17-18. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

4. Paul:

Acts 19:11-12. And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

Remember, you too can do all things, for the glory of God and by His strength. So dream it  and you shall attain it in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, if believing that you are a god as the Bible reveals in the Old Testament, is difficult for you to believe. Then you must believe what the truth personified said about you. Jesus our Lord is the truth and knows the truth through and through.

John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Our Lord made the Bible days believers to know Him and recognise Him as God. So they relates with Him from the perspective of a God.

John 10:30. I and my Father are one.

See how Thomas addressed Him.

John 20:27-28. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

Philippians 2:5-6. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

Our Lord as God drummed it to the hearing of His Bible days followers and by extension you, today’s follower.  He wanted then to know that as God, He could do all things. But then as His faithful followers, if they would believe Him, they will do the same things He did and even greater.

Mark 9:23. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

John 14:12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

See some other things He told then to boost their faith and encouraged them to do exploits.

John 15:4-5. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 11:40. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

Mark 16:17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Matthew 17:20: And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 21:21-22 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mark 11:23: For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Dearly beloved, it was doing greater exploits through the strength of Christ and for His glory, that the blessed Holy Spirit through the writings of Paul apostle was reaffirming. See it.

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

That is to say becoming able minister or able manager or able administrator through the sufficiency of God.

2 Corinthians 3:4-6. And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Beloved can you dream of anything that can bring glory to God. Then pursue it and possess it through the strength of Christ and for His glory.

Ephesians 3:16: That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

Ephesians 6:10: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Colossians 1:11: Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

See instances of Peter and Paul apostles function and doing the works of Christ and greater works, by His strength and for His glory.
Peter:

Acts 5:14-16. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Paul :

Acts 14:8-10 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

Beloved followers of Christ did exploits with the strength of Christ and for His glory and they were called gods as the Bible says in the  old testament.

Acts 14:11. And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.

Psalms 82:6. I have said, Ye are gods;  and all of you are children of the most High.

It is now your turn to do exploits. Arise and begin to do so in the name of Jesus. But you say how? Simple . By faith in God.

Hebrews 11:6: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

See how saints in Bible days did exploits only through faith in God. So follow their examples  and bring glory to God and blessings to humanity. It shall be done in Jesus name.

Hebrews 11:32-35. And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

Friend, as you patiently and believingly await the dawning rapture, their is one mentality that can guarantee your preparedness. This mentality of believing you could do all things through the strength of Christ.

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Friend, as you ponder on the requisites for participation, you wonder could you ever be able to attain them. See some of these requisites.

Ephesians 5:25-27. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Hebrews 12:14. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Revelation 21:27. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Don’t  give in to slavish fear that, those requisites can not be attained by you. Why?
Because of three reasons.
1. God shall provide you sufficient grace to attain them.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2. God shall keep you from falling to help you attain the requisites.

Jude 1:24. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

3. God shall strength you through Christ to attain them.

Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

This is my persuasion of you that, you are going to be part of the raptured saints. So I look forward to seeing you then. Shalom.
