A Philippians 4:13 Meditation

Last night I spent alot of time at my desk with my hands on my head trying to get my brain to comprehend what it just doesn’t seem to want to grasp at the moment. I sat back and thought to myself, “I need a scripture to meditate on.” No sooner than the thought popped into my mind did the scripture pop into my mind. It’s an oldie but goody, but I meditated on it differently, choosing to repeat it over and over again with strong emphasis on every word as I went through the repetition. The scripture and its intent were illuminated in my mind by doing this and I just had to get it out of my head and put it down so that others might be blessed by it too.

A Phillipians 4:13 Meditation to be repeated and each time you repeat it emphasize the next word.

Say it normally the first time:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Second time say it and emphasize the first word:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Third time say it and emphasize the second word:

“I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Fourth time say it and emphasize the third word:

“I can DO all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

And so on so forth. At the end of it, your meditation should look like this:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

“I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

“I can DO all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

“I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.”

“I can do all THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.”

“I can do all things THROUGH Christ who strengthens me.”

“I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me.”

“I can do all things through Christ WHO strengthens me.”

“I can do all things through Christ who STRENGTHENS me.”

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens ME.”

Then say it one last time. Scream it to the mountain tops. Shout it in the devil’s face or to anyone or anything that is trying to convince you that you can’t do what you have set out to do.

“I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME.”

All better. 🙂

  1. Dear Sir: I love this thought of meditating on the Bible in this way. Say a scripture emphasizing a different word each time and then shout it at the top of your voice. Thank you for sharing this idea. I had never thought of it before. Sue

  2. This reminds me of the time I learned how to do Lexio Divina at a retreat a couple of years back, where we read verses and repeated them, taking each line slower, and emphasizing every word, in different timing, and so forth… It’s as interesting to see it blogged out and see it this way as well. I remember feeling very at peace with the Word. And as if whatever Scripture I read and did Lexio with, it felt like the Lord was truly speaking to me. May the Lord continue speaking to you in this way. God bless.
