Where do we get our strength when we need it? God gives it to us, all we have to do is ask for it.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (KJV)
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (NIV)
The Apostle Paul, whom I assume I am named after, wrote most of the New Testament (through divine inspiration) and his books are filled with verses that can be used to help you, to teach you, and to guide you. This verse is one that all Christians should know and memorize, and use when they need an extra boost.
You cannot do anything without the support of Christ, but with Christ all things are possible. As you go about your daily lives, and encounter struggles that seem to want to over take you, turn to Christ and ask Him for support to get you through it. Our God is all powerful and all you have to do is have faith and trust in Him and He will get you through your darkest days, or hardest struggles.
When we are weak, we will always fail, but with God’s strength you will succeed. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it shall be given you…“, Philippians 4:13 just proves it!

2 Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Cor 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
