Some versions of this verse say, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. This is possibly one of the most misquoted verses in the Bible. It doesn't mean we can do absolutely anything in Christ - it doesn't mean you can make a million dollars by the age of 25, become the next pop sensation, or be the dux of your school.
In verses 10-12 Paul was telling the Philippians that had learned to be content whether he was in need or whether he had plenty. This verse means that we can bear any hardship, endure any temptation, perform any duty with the strength Christ provides.
CHALLENGE: Can you think of situations where Christ's strength helped you through? Are you facing a situation now that you don't know how you will get through? Ask God for his strength.
