Replace “I Can’t” with “I Can”

I woke up today around 4 a.m. Not on purpose – just feeling tense and anxious. In the darkness, I found myself whispering two words: “I can’t ...”

Perhaps you have found yourself whispering those words in the night –

I can’t face another day ...

I can’t overcome this temptation ...

I can’t deal with this pain ...

I can’t ... I can’t ... I can’t ...

My cry for help was as short as my cry of despair –

“Lord Jesus, fill me with your Spirit ... replace ‘I can’t’ with ‘I can.’”

Take courage – this is a prayer God always answers.

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (Luke 11:9-13)
