WATCH, PRAY AND COOPERATE
Author: King Makupe
Watch, and co-operate with the prayer-hearing God. Bear in mind that “we are labourers together with God.” 1 Corinthians 3:9. Speak and act in harmony with your prayers. It will make an infinite difference with you whether trial shall prove your faith to be genuine, or show that your prayers are only a form.
When perplexities arise, and difficulties confront us, look not for help to humanity. Trust God with all. The practice of telling our difficulties to others only makes us weak, and brings no strength to them. It lays upon them the burden of our spiritual short falls, which they cannot relieve. We seek the strength of erring, finite man, when we might have the strength of the unerring, infinite God.
We need not go to the ends of the earth for wisdom, for God is near. It is nkot the capabilities we now possess or ever will have that will give us success. It is that which the Lord can do for us. We need to have far less confidence in what man can do and far more confidence in what God can do for every believing soul. He longs to have us reach after Him by faith. He longs to have us expect great things from Him. He longs to give understanding in temporal as well as in spiritual matters. He can sharpen the intellect. He can give tact and skill. Put your talents into the work, ask God for wisdom, and it will be given you.
