September 6 – You Can Do It

249 – You Can Do It

#faithbites #faithjourney Do It

As Rob Sneider in the WaterBoy says “You Can Do It”. That is the message of today’s #faithbite. No matter how hard life is, no matter how many things are thrown at you, you can not only survive but thrive. But not alone, you need help. We all do.

Today, I came back to work after 2 days out for my knee and two days being sick. I didn’t want to get out of bed, I didn’t want to drive, nor did I want to walk to work. I was feeling down, sick, and exhausted. But then it came to me “You Can Do It”. Maybe it was the Holy Spirit telling me to keep going. Maybe it was the Lord talking to me. Could be I just like the waterboy. But I kept walking.

It’s hard when everything seems like it’s going wrong and you just don’t feel up to it but you can do it.

Scripture on Doing it
  •  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13
  • Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. – Proverbs 16:3
  • Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. – 1 Chronicles 4:10
Reflection

Sometimes it feels like we are the little train that could. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. But what we forget is we have a powerful steam engine to help us up the mountain. The Lord, our God, gives us Strength. He establishes our plans and wouldn’t want us to fail in his plans so he helps us. We can accomplish all things we set out mind too.

When the day is long and you are sick, it is hard to keep moving. Finding the strength to keep on pushing is hard. There are times when I say “I’m done with x,y,z”. Then I realize that isn’t helpful and find a way to keep moving on.

Charge

This charge should be easy. Wake up. Get out of bed. Eat something. Get dressed (I don’t care about the order). Pray for strength for the day. Then as the song says: Move, Keep walking. You are a soldier of God. He will help you do what he wants you to do.
