“God, I Can’t but You Can”

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13

There have been so many times throughout my life where I’ve ignored the verse above. Thoughts of doubt and frustration have too often stopped me from carrying out God’s plan for my life.

It’s easy to forget how powerful we really are as a member of God’s kingdom. Maybe you’ve passed up a great opportunity in the past, or let anxiety stop you from doing something God wanted you to do. We’ve all been there, but it’s time we start replacing thoughts of doubt and confusion with six simple words: “God, I can’t but you can.”

These six words can make a world of difference, not only in your work, school, or home life but in your relationship with God, too. When we let our walls down and finally admit that we can’t do this alone, God is right there, ready to take over.

When we wave our white flag and get rid of our prideful mindsets, God will start to work in ways we never even knew were possible. It’s a humbling process that we have to experience in order to give ourselves fully to God.

1 Peter 5:6-7 always gives me the reality check I need when I think I don’t need God’s help. It says, “Humble yourselves, then, under God’s mighty hand, so that he will lift you up in his own good time. Leave all your worries with him, because he cares for you.

When I have thoughts of pride and independence, I immediately feel embarrassed and guilty and think of this passage from 1 Peter. God’s love is so incomprehensible that we take advantage of it. We compare it to worldly love that so easily withers and fades.

You may feel a weight on your shoulders to perform a certain way or succeed in all that you do. Maybe you start a new job next week and are rehearsing exactly what you’ll say and do down to the hour, minute, second… This is when you surrender to God and humbly acknowledge that you can’t do this alone.

We are God’s precious children, and he wants us to ask for his help. Once we accept the fact that we simply can’t do this life on our own, we allow him to work in ways we never even thought were possible!

I urge you to surrender to God every morning before you even get out of bed. Write down a prayer in your phone, journal, notes, etc., to pray when you want God to know he’s in control.  Let Him in the driver’s seat because through Him, anything is possible!

Sometimes you just have to pray and say “God, I can’t but you can.” These six simple words can move mountains and allow God take over the reins on your life. This phrase is the perfect start to full devotion to God and a faith that cannot be shaken!

Mountain Moving Prayers

God is known to move mountains. He can and will continue to do so in your life and the lives of those around you, you just have to seek him out and ask!

You may be thinking, “What exactly is a ‘mountain moving prayer?’”

Mark 11:23-24 says, “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Mountain moving prayers are those of which that seem impossible, but can be made possible by God. They’re the prayers that’ll work wonders and truly make a difference when you believe in God’s power and his ability to do so.

Pray for the world.

The world could always use a little more prayer. If you don’t know where to start, see what the news has to say about the devastating events that are happening all across the globe. There is always somewhere that needs someone to pray for them, whether that be a country going through a natural disaster or a place that has yet to be introduced to Christ. Whatever the case may be, never stop praying for the people around the world and the places that need our prayers the most!

Pray for the future.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13

We may never know what the future holds, but it’s comforting to know that God does. When we pray for security over our future, God works wonders and reassures us that our paths are already laid out ahead of us! We just have to trust in him and find comfort in his word. God will take care of the rest!

Pray for guidance.

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” – John 16:13

Praying for guidance allows for God to speak to us, and opens doors we never thought would be opened. It gives me a peace of mind knowing that I can hear God if I simply listen for him! When we ask God for guidance, he will surely give it to us, whether it be in the form of small whispers or a wise best friend!

Pray for discovery.

When we pray for discovery, God takes this opportunity to reveal things to us, whether we want him to or not. Maybe he’ll reveal certain convictions that you’ve pushed to the back of your mind time and time again. Or maybe he’ll have you discover things about him and his word that you never have before!

Pray for influence.

Lastly, pray for the influence you have on people. We are quick to underestimate ourselves, but people take notice when they can see the love of Christ shining through us! God uses our bodies as vessels to help him do his work here on earth. Never underestimate the influence you have! Pray for boldness and confidence in this area, and God will use you more than you know!

These are only some of the many things that you can, and should, pray for! Don’t be afraid to talk to God, and let him move mountains in your life and the lives around you! 🙂
