There’s no question Jesus is the answer. But He won’t do it without us.
That has been His plan from the beginning. GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY IS unquestionable. He created all things and, likewise, upholds all things by the “Word of His power” (Heb. 1: 3). He is absolutely capable of overthrowing the powers of darkness using nothing beyond a breath or a syllable. In God’s sovereignty, He made a decision to include you and me in this process. Such is a privilege only reserved for His intimates, created in His image and likeness. Your very design is absolute proof that God has ordained you to be a vessel through which He will carry out His plans on the earth. It reveals one fit for total compatibility with the Creator.
Paul makes this relationship clear when he writes, “For we are laborers together with God” (1 Cor. 3: 9 KJV). We do not labor in our own strength, though. God gave us a commission but did not leave us empty-handed. He supplied us with the ultimate ability to complete the task: Himself.
He did not simply give us power, although He does. He actually gave Himself to us by filling us with His Spirit.

1 CORINTHIANS 3: 9-17
God, thank You that You never give me an assignment that You don’t equip me for. Thank You for Your endless wisdom, power, and love. It is by Your Spirit, not my own strength, that I can complete the commission You have given me to bring Heaven’s divine solutions to this world.
