It’s interesting that God invites so much involvement from us in his kingdom’s work. I suppose if I were playing God’s role, I’d be less trusting and do most of it myself.
For all the scripture, spiritual gifting, and responsibility that he’s imparted to us, I don’t think he ever designed it to be the blueprint and tools whereby we make a run at it without him. He keeps everything in relationship with him. He wants us to find ways to rely on his strength to show up, by his spirit, through us. It’s a balance I find myself going back to especially on my busiest of weeks.
For a little more reading on the subject, consider Release of the Spirit by Watchman Nee. I’ve got some cliff notes if you prefer.
