The Upper Room 28 March 2023 Daily Devotional MESSAGE

In the last week of my dad’s life, he didn’t complain as he lay in the ICU. Instead, he wanted to be sure that I was getting enough rest at night and that I understood how to handle the affairs of his home. Some days he asked to hear scripture read aloud. He loved Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through [Christ] who strengthens me.” He repeated those words with a calm confidence that his Good Shepherd would lead him along the last stretch of his path on earth.

The apostle Paul had experienced a series of unusual circumstances. He recalled his successes and failures, the times when his cupboard was bare and the times friends provided him home-cooked meals. Yet despite everything he faced, Paul shows us that when we learn to trust in Christ we find contentment.

In whatever we face today God is always at work — both in us and in our circumstances. With God’s help, we all will be able to say, “It really is true! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”

God of strength, open our hearts so that we may learn contentment. Help us always to trust in you and your Son, who strengthens us. Amen.

No matter my circumstances, I will trust Christ to give me strength.
