When Christ came to the world, he stated emphatically that of all the commandments, love is the greatest. Christ came to world through the love that God have for humanity. After the fall of the first man, there was a vacuum that was created between man and God. Man lost his rightful position in the agenda of God and there was a need for restoration of man.
The restoration could not have been possible if not by redemption. Meanwhile, redemption doesn’t happen unless something is bargain for another. God had to release Christ to die for the redemption of man.

I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me. When you have a big dream, people will sometimes put you down with words. They make you feel you can’t do it or achieve anything through the words of their mouth. This discouragement at times might make you feel less of yourself and start giving you reasons why it will be impossible for you to accomplish those goals.

Knowing that there is nothing that is unachievable is great, knowing that you can do all things by the power of he that strengthen you. This gives you the understanding not to rely on your strength or power. When they tell you it is not possible, when they tell you it is too big for you to achieve, you just need to tell them it is not you, but Christ who live in you.

Remember Christ has the disciples were in a boat. Jesus slept off in the boat and suddenly, the wind became so heavy that the boat was about to capsize. The disciples relied on their strength and knowledge as sailors to salvage the situation, but all was to no avail. Until they cry out to Christ for help. When Christ was awoke, he rebuked the wind and peace was restored. This further expresses the fact that our help only come from God.

Knowing the right place or person to call for help reduces the stress of finding one. When trouble comes, this verse equip us with the knowledge that our help is from the lord, he is our help in time of trouble.
So, instead of running to other gods or seeking solutions from source that contradict Christ, we just go straight to the cross for help.
