I Can........

20 Cans of Wisdom

1 Why should I say I can't when the Bible says I can do all

things through Christ who gives me strength (Philippians


2 Why should I lack when I know that God shall supply all my

needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus

(Philippians 4:19)?

3 Why should I fear when the Bible says God has not given me a

spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2

Timothy 1:7)?

4 Why should I lack faith to fulfill my calling, knowing that

God has allotted to me a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)?

5 Why should I be weak when the Bible says that the Lord is the

strength of my life and that I will display strength and take

action because I know God (Psalm 27:1; Daniel 11:32)?

6 Why should I allow Satan supremacy over my life when He that

is in me is greater than he that is in the world (1 John


7 Why should I accept defeat when the Bible says that God

always leads me in triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14)?

8 Why should I lack wisdom when Christ became wisdom to me from

God and God gives wisdom to me generously when I ask Him for

it (1 Corinthians 1:30; James 1:5)?

9 Why should I be depressed when I can recall to mind God's

lovingkindness, compassion and faithfulness, and have hope

(Lamentations 3:21-23)?

10Why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on

Christ who cares for me (1 Peter 5:7)?

11 Why should I ever be in bondage knowing that there is liberty

where the Spirit of the Lord is (2 Corinthians 3:17)?

12 Why should I feel condemned when the Bible says I am not

condemned because I am in Christ (Romans 8:1)?

13 Why should I feel alone when Jesus said He is with me always

and He will never leave me nor forsake me (Matthew 28:20;

Hebrews 13:5)?

14 Why should I feel accursed or that I am the victim of bad

luck when the Bible says that Christ redeemed me from the

curse of the law that I might receive His Spirit (Galatians

3:13, 14)?

15 Why should I be discontented when I, like Paul, can learn to

be content in all my circumstances (Philippians 4:11)?

16 Why should I feel worthless when Christ became sin on my

behalf that I might become the righteousness of God in Him (2

Corinthians 5:21)?

17 Why should I have a persecution complex knowing that nobody

can be against me when God is for me (Romans 8:31)?

18 Why should I be confused when God is the author of peace and

He gives me knowledge through his indwelling Spirit (1

Corinthians 14:33; 2:12)?

19 Why should I feel like a failure when I am a conqueror in all

things through Christ (Romans 8:37)?

20 Why should I let the pressures of life bother me when I can

take courage knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and

its tribulations (John 16:33)?
