God expects us to do all we can, then He will do what we can't! When Jesus went to raise Lazarus from the dead, He told the people, "Roll ye away the stone!" (Jn.11:39) He could have made Lazarus walk right through the stone, so why did they have to roll it away?--Rolling the stone away from the door of the tomb was something they could do. They couldn't raise him from the dead, but they could roll the stone away!
God's not always going to do it for you when you can do it for yourself! He said to Moses, "What is that in thine hand?" (Exo.4:2) He usually lets you do what you CAN do, then He does what you can't do. Jesus said, "seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you, ask and ye shall receive." (Mat.7:7,8) If you don't go around looking, you're not going to find. Maybe all nine doors are shut and you're only going to find one open, but are you just going to sit there and say, "Lord, reveal it to me"?--No! God expects you to put feet to your prayers, get out and do a little hoofing and look!
If you know you're doing your best to please and obey Him, God will do almost anything for you, some of the most amazing things you could possibly imagine! So help us, Lord, to do b part and obey! Then we know you will do the rest!
