Do what is actually in your hands to do
1Samuel 17-18 / Revelation 19-22
17:47 “And everyone will know that the LORD does not need weapons to rescue his people. It is his battle, not ours. The LORD will give you to us!”
18:28-29 When the king realized how much the LORD was with David and how much Michal loved him, he became even more afraid of him, and he remained David’s enemy for the rest of his life.
19:10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said, “No, don’t worship me. For I am a servant of God, just like you and other brothers and sisters who testify of their faith in Jesus. Worship God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.”
21:22-23 No temple could be seen in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.
22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let each one who hears them say, “Come.” Let the thirsty ones come–anyone who wants to. Let them come and drink the water of life without charge.

“Don’t just stand there, pray something.” Ronald Dunn
Prayer IS the work
“Add” – Furnish what you can do and God won’t (2Peter)
Get in the habit of “adding” – do what you know to do
Take the step
Where you are – not where you are not
This is the definition of Virtue (2Peter)
