When I was a kid I worked for my dad who owned a construction company. My dad was using a 16oz hammer and I was using a 20oz hammer to do work. One day we were framing an addition and we were driving 16 penny nails and I was swinging that hammer as hard as I could. I looked over and he was driving the nails in quicker with the lighter hammer. I was sweating, and my arm was getting sore and tired after a little bit. FINALLY….. he said to me, “son, you are working too hard, let the hammer do the work.”
SOME OF US ARE WORKING TOO HARD STRIVING TO WORK IN THE FLESH TO ACCOMPLISH A GOD THING IN OUR LIVES.
YOU ARE WORKING TOO HARD!!
Let the Word do the work!
Is. 55:11, It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
Heb. 4:12, For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
OUR GREATEST JOB IS NOT SWINGING THE HAMMER, BUT KNOWING THE HAMMER HAS THE POWER TO ACCOMPLISH THE JOB.
It is not that we do nothing!
Just like it takes an arm and hand to hold the hammer and direct it to the nail head, so OUR FAITH ACTIVATED AS WE KNOW THE WORD HAS THE POWER TO ACCOMPLISH ALL WE NEED, WE CAN SIMPLY DIRECT OUR FAITH TO THE MOUNTAIN THAT NEEDS TO MOVE!
Matt 17:20, So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
TRUST THE POWER OF THE WORD OVER THE FLESH!
