Even wash my dishes

" I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13. Wow, the power in that verse, but do I really believe it means "all thing"? In my mind I think "ohh that is only talking about things like handling temptation, surviving persecution, or the boldness to speak up for God". On the contrary all means all. I know the verse before is talking about Paul being content whether living in abundance or suffering. I still find I can apply this Philippians verse to all things, even everyday life, because we allow the mundane everyday things of our life to affect our hearts and dictate if we shine for God or not.

God cares about the everyday things. Look at Proverbs 31 or Titus 2 if you question taking care of those around us and our home is important. When we do all our everyday things with out arguing or complaining we can shine like the stars of the universe and holding out the word of life to others (Philippians 2:14-16).

So today I pray. "Praise you, Jesus, that you care about even the little responsibilities in my life and you will give me the strength and power to get them done. I can do all things, even wash my dishes and pick up my home through You, my Messiah, who strengthens me".
