If a one-thousand-ton block of iron had to be lifted by crane, how much could you help? Suppose you could get a grip on it and tried to heave and pull what difference would you make? There would be no difference, and it wouldn't help. But it is different with God. "He's got the whole world in his hand". Jesus said He had ALL power. That's surely enough!
Does that mean that we should sit idle? Far from it. You have a privileged and important part to play. What is it? What do hoist-operators do? They hook the load to the lifting gear! That's what our job is also. Don't try to lift everybody's burden all by yourself. That is only what God can do. Our simple task is to bring people to Him, and hook them to the lifting power of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:18-19 ... And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Acts 1:8 ... But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Jude 22-23 ... And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Romans 15:13 ... Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.❤
