Great Verses Of The Bible: Philippians 4:13

Philippians 4.13

One day a small boy was trying to lift a heavy rock. He strained with all his might, but he couldn’t budge it.

His father, passing by, stopped to watch his futile efforts.

Finally he said to his son: “Are you using all your strength?’

“Yes, I am!” the boy cried, exasperated.

“No,” the father said calmly, “You’re not. You haven’t asked me to help you.”

The child needed to learn to depend upon his father, as an added source of strength.

In one of the great verses of the Bible, we are reminded that we have a great source of spiritual strength when we face trials, suffer hardship, or encounter burdens that are too heavy for us to bear alone.

The apostle Paul affirmed, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Phil 4:13)
