For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. (Psalm 18:29)
The apostle Paul said it this way, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”(1) What are your life endeavors? What exploits do you wish to conquer? I pray that they are bigger than you. Anyone can achieve that which is common to man. Anyone can accomplish mediocrity. Greatness comes to those who seek things bigger than themselves. It comes to those who know that without intervention by someone greater than themselves, their mission will not be realized.
Therefore seek great things for and from God. Ask for a dream or desire so big that if God does not get involved, it cannot be accomplished. However, realize that before God will do the great things in our lives, we must be willing to do the things He has equipped us to do. We are already equipped to obey the commandments. We are able to do the good that we know we are to do. It is the extraordinary exploits that require the ability to run through a troop and leap over a wall.
