Just when you think you can't.
Definition of the primary preposition through: denoting (fixed) position (in place, time or state), and (by implication) instrumentality (medially or constructively), i.e. a relation of rest (intermediate between εἰς (G1519) and ἐκ (G1537))
Geez. Chew on that for a moment.
Now look at the verse penned by Paul: "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13).
According to the definition, we can do (be serviceable, be in sound health, have strength to overcome) all things through Christ in any place, time, or state. (I want to live this way!) Christ also serves as the instrument through which we can "do" all things.
Think in a middle-ish kind of way when you see the word medially. In other words, Christ is the conduit or the instrument in the middle of any place, time, or state we may find ourselves.
And what is the result of doing all things through Christ?
We find REST. When we do things through Christ, we enter into rest or peace. And ultimately we are strengthened. Let's imagine that we become bold or headstrong for Christ.
So today, try to do all things through Christ. Have a decision to make? Feeling burdened? Offended? Afraid? Angry? Allow Christ to guide you. He is at the helm. Now let Him steer. You can do it!!!
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.
