Philippians 4:10–19

Verse 13

literally:

All things I can do,
in him who empowers me.

“Can do” = “have force/strength”

  • Mark 9:17–18 Boy was having seizures, the disciples tried to help and they “could not”
  • Luke 8:43 A woman who had spent everything on doctors for 12 years. She could not be healed by anyone.
  • John 21:6 He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they could not haul it in, because of the quantity of fish.
  • James 5:16 ...pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has force.
  • Acts 19:20 (Ephesus) In this way the word of the Lord continued to grow in power and have force.

John 14

  1. Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me?
    The words that I say to you, I do not speak on my own initiative, but the Father residing in me performs his miraculous deeds…
  2. I tell you the truth,
    the person who believes in me will perform the miraculous deeds that I am doing,
    and will perform greater deeds than these, because I am going to the Father…
  3. You will know at that time that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you.
