"That is what the Christian needs. He has an Almighty God that he worships. And he must learn to understand that he does not need a *little* of God's power, but he needs (with reverence, be it said) the whole of God's omnipotence to keep him right, and to live like a Christian. The whole of Christianity is a work of God's omnipotence. ...I want to call upon you now to come and worship an Almighty God. Have you learned to do it? ...God trained Abraham to trust Him as the Omnipotent One.
...The cause of the weakness of your Christian life is that you want to work it out partly, and to let God help you. And that can not be. You must come to be utterly helpless, to let God work and God will work gloriously. It is this that we need... I could go through Scripture and prove to you how Moses when he led Israel out of Egypt, how Joshua when he brought them into the land of Canaan, how all God's servants in the Old Testament counted on the omnipotence of God doing impossibilities. And this God lives today. And this God is the God of every child of His.
And yet, we are, some of us, wanting God to give us a little help while we do our best. "
