A Father’s Secret Superpower

A Father’s Secret Superpower

Philippians 4: 12-13, NKJV

12. I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4: 12-13, The Message

I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.
  1. The humbling acknowledgement that some aspects of life can only be taught through
  • Tests - will push us
  • Tragedies - can attempt to break us
  • Triumphs - will ultimately lift us  
  1. A celebratory comfort with the rhythms of life’s transitions; life will change!  
  • Seasons of abundance
  • Seasons of plenty
  • Seasons of security
  • Seasons of scarcity

3. A blessed assurance in a Christ who strengthens us regardless of the aspects, rhythms and changes of life. - A father, or anyone’s superpower is not our innate strength, but the extraordinary strength of an indwelling Christ.

  • Accept Christ’s power
  • Rely on Christ’s power
  • Rest in Christ’s power
