God will work with you in the NATURAL realm and in the SUPERNATURAL realm. These two realms will work together. St Paul said, "we are workers together with God." (2 Cor 6:1)

God wants you to use all your strength, and rely on His unlimited strength.

God wants you to think and dream and focus and train yourself to use your mind, but all the while He wants you to rely on the mind of Christ.

He wants you to work hard, and know that He is simultaneously working tirelessly, ceaselessly, powerfully on your behalf.

Num 21:32 - After Moses had sent spies to Jazer, the Israelites captured its surrounding settlements and drove out the Amorites who were there.
Num 21:33 - Then they turned and went up along the road toward Bashan, and Og king of Bashan and his whole army marched out to meet them in battle at Edrei.
Num 21:34 - The LORD said to Moses, "Do not be afraid of him, for I have delivered him into your hands, along with his whole army and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon."
Num 21:35 - So they struck him down ....

40 years before this event, Moses sent 12 spies into the Promised Land. When the spies saw the giants who already lived there they were terrified and refused to go into the Promised Land. That's why the Israelites had to wander in the wilderness for 40 years, as punishment for refusing to trust God.

Now 40 years later Moses again sent spies to go ahead of the army. But this time they added big faith to their best efforts, using wisdom and good common sense, using all the abilities God had given them, but trusting in God for victory. And God rewarded the Israelites with powerful victories.

Use every ability God has given you. Use it to the fullest of your capacity. Develop yourself. Push yourself. Stretch yourself. But in every endeavor put your trust in Him. Have you sent out spies? Have you planned, thought and dreamed of how to accomplish great things? That's wonderful! Good for you! God bless you! Now add your faith, use big faith, and trust God to supply His unlimited supernatural power to bring it all to pass. 

Be of good courage! You cannot lose! God is on the move in your life!
