You have heard it a thousand times: what God cannot do does not exist. God can do far more than you could ever imagine or guess in your wildest dreams! God can do much more than we are even bold enough to request. However, there is another side to this God-can-do-it-all business, the idea that God acts by working within us.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us(Ephesians 3:20 ESV)
God does not only work externally; splitting rocks and parting the waters. God also empowers you internally with the courage you need to face mountains and decide to part the waters. The idea that God is out there doing it all is not a complete picture. He is deep at work within you. God at work within us is the foundation of some of the greatest human achievements of all time. From Noah to Abraham and Moses to Samuel, you see God moulding the hearts of people and making them mighty. God is out there doing it all by working deep within you.
If you are serious about changing the world or serving as the salt and light of the world, you need to realise the need for a consistent prayer practice. You have to simultaneously pray as you seek out and implement the rational processes required for fulfilment of the goal. Your true goal is to humble yourself enough and allow God to guide you internally towards the most optimised way to accomplish your tasks. It is baffling that even though we know that God is all-powerful, we are reluctant and struggle with the idea of submitting ourselves to his complete influence. You cannot beat a river into submission; you have to surrender fully to God and that way, you channel his power fully towards greater exploits.
