I thought when I prayed about something, then I was done.
First, you just don’t pray about something, you really pray about something, showing how much you really need it. After prayers, there’s the work part. They say nothing good comes easy, so eventhough God will have to finish up after your best, it doesn’t make working any easier. (If any would not work, neither should he eat 2 Thessalonians 3 :10)
You need to utilize your full potential, and then watch God turn your limited human ability into something extraordinary.
So it’s true that journey of a million miles begins with a step and that only with practice can one attain perfection – even for those of us that pray.
The difference is:
We get to be extraordinarily sucessful.
