I love Philippians 4:14, but the verse before helps to paint the complete picture.
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.
So even though Paul KNOWS that he can do all things through Christ, he acknowledges that it’s so good when friends come along side us during hardship. We need each other ladies! Yes, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, but there is so much comfort in having a friend by your side.
Proverbs 27:9 – Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy, for good friends are like the anointing oil that yields the fragrant incense of God’s presence.
Be a best friend to someone today and point them to God!
