What only God can Do

2 Thessalonians 3:1

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:


Paul asks the good people of Thessalonica that they would pray for him. That they would pray that God would give him favor with others as God did with them in Thessalonica, that he would have open access to preaching the Gospel and open hearts to receiving the Gospel. It is God who has the power to open and close doors. It is God who could move the heart of a king. It is God who can calm the storms. It is God who can give favor in the eyes of others. It is God who can give all wisdom, power and strength. So Paul pleads that they ask God to do the work that Paul cannot do. 

And so we must realize the same, that it is God that can do what we cannot do. If we are going to a advance, God is the one who is going to have to bless. No efforts from a man can equal what God can do. We need God’s hep.
