The Truth About Philippians 4:13, Grace & Truth

Grace and Truth

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Philippians 4:13 NKJV

Philippians 4:13 is a favorite Christian coffee mug verse. It’s also widely taken out of context and misunderstood. 

Confusion around misunderstood scripture kept me at arm’s length from God for many years. I used to think Philippians was the magic spell of Scripture. Just fold my hands, look to Heaven, call on His Holy name and…

 Bippidy-Bobbidy-Boo! All my dreams delivered!

Now I have a passion to share the truths I discover in Scripture, prayer, and from other Christian writers like Barbara Lee Harper. She enjoys “…encouraging others with what God has taught me along the way.”

God taught her some valuable truths about Philippians 4:13 when she studied the verse in context. She shares her Stray Thoughts in the post “Philippians 4:13 is for Losers, Too.”

    I appreciated Barbara’s take on this very popular verse. It’s used out of context more than in context, so it’s good to see it getting a fresh look.
