I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengtheneth Me. (Philippians 4: 13)


By Marie Buchanan

What I understood from the Word of God is that there is no temptation that is
over our strength that He is providing what we need on time to overcome
because He is taking care of our soul by helping us to get through this
life to Heaven.

From what I read from the Apostle Paul, it was way beyond his strength what
he had to go through. Because of my actual circumstances, here is just a glimpse of
what I understood

This is supporting what you said to me: "I know how tough things can be, but He never gives us more than we can handle"

Philippians 4
13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 11 (King James Version)

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so
that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by
which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his
gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not
found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he
had this testimony, that he pleased God.

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.

7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with
fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he
condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by

8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should
after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing
whither he went.

9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country,
dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the
same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was
delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him
faithful who had promised.

12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars
of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore

13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen
them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and
confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came
out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God
is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a

17 By faith
Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received
the promises offered up his only begotten son,

18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the
children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents,
because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the
king’s commandment.

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for
he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

32 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:

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

34 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.


This is also supporting that we can go through more than we can handle without losing our focus who is the Lord Jesus Christ….

My quote:

think sometimes it is over our strength but He is with us and it
certainly was over His strength as a human when our Father abandoned
Him on the cross to wash us from our sins in this life and afterlife
(though we will be perfect only in Heaven, He is already doing a
cleansing process on this earth) and He was perfect.

In other words, Yeshuah did go over His strength (His human nature) for our love for us and it did break
our Father’s heart to have to crush His PERFECT son for us but He did it
because it pleased Him to so in order to save us, unworthy sinners. So that really is touching deeply my heart is when I think that our Brother
who was PERFECT went through a REAL HELL on earth, the worst hell on
earth you can think of in your wildest dreams because Satan and all
the demons were against Him while Father abandoned Him on the cross..

35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not
accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the
sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being
destitute, afflicted, tormented;

38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

2Corintians 11:24-28

Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three
times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was
shipwrecked; a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent
journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my
own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the
wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers; in toil and
hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often
without food, in cold and exposure. And, apart from other things, there
is the daily pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches.
