“We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored.” – 1 Corinthians 4:10
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
We need God-power and God needs manpower. The usual ratio is ninety nine percent God-power to one percent manpower. When Joshua stood on the borders of a whole land to be conquered, God said, “I will be with you.” When the task is assigned the means to complete it are also given. The ability, the wisdom, and the power of God are made freely available.
We can only do what we have power to do. If God asks us to do more than is in our power, He makes up for the deficiency! We do what we can, and God does what we cannot. Whatever we do on this planet is limited by the power available. In past centuries, power was only physical strength, muscle power. They built the pyramids, dug the great canals of Suez and Panama, and cut roads through the mountains – all by brawn. The Seven Wonders of the ancient world are examples of brawn power. Now we have a thousand modern wonders brought into being by new power sources, not brute strength. Nothing is impossible when the right kind of power is operating. Jesus said “you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the end of the earth.” The Church has too often trusted scholarship, erudition, genius, logic, and philosophy. But Paul said “God has chosen the foolish things.” If we are to evangelize the world by cerebral methods, we will never do it. That has been tried for centuries. But real Church growth has been brought about by the simple message of the Gospel touching people from all walks of life.
God promises that you will never be given too much to bear, and that you will not be asked to do more than you are capable to do with His help. Not only in your speech – “praying … that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel” – but also in your actions. Therefore, be a doer today in every way that He leads you!
