Did Jesus 'do Hard things?'
''I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me''(phil 4:13). This is an encouraging verse, it's telling us that nothing is impossible for our creator no matter how hard. If we follow Jesus' example we will notice that he did 'hard things' in fact he did the hardest thing of all, he paid for our sins. If Jesus can ''do hard things'' and if we gain our strength through him, then 'doing hard things' should be a cinch. But sometimes they're not, sometimes we fail because Satan, the world and our own sin nature convinces us that it's too hard, even for God. They don't come out and say ''it's too hard for God'' they say it quietly, so that we are easily persuaded to think like them. But don't lose heart, because we can do all things through him who saved us.
