July 4

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”  Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

On this day in the United States we see flags flying and we celebrate the holiday which is known as Independence Day. As we enjoy national independence, however, we are reminded of our spiritual dependence upon our God. Paul, in this verse, did not brag about his ability to handle everything himself. He realized that he was fully dependent on God’s help. Whatever he did he was doing in the strength and ability which God gave him. The same is true for us. We are not independent. We cannot get along with our own. We must depend upon God every day. How wonderful to know that His help is available.
