REWRITE THE VERSE USING THE DEFINITIONS OF THE WORDS IN THE VERSE:
I’m able to attend to any specific thing by means of the Holy Spirit, who hands over to me [REALLY TO ME!] the power.
PARAPHARSE THE VERSE:
Whatever comes my way, today in Christ Jesus I’ll take it on!
How does this verse apply to your life and what will you do about it?
Like Paul, I should trust the Lord to enable me to handle whatever life throws my way. I’m going to trust more!
My life is full of could of, would of, should of’s! Today by the power of the Holy Spirit enable me, strengthen me, teach me to trust!
