It is difficult when there is tension between two different things that you know to be true. On the one hand, the things that we need to accomplish are so far beyond our capacity, that we are utterly reliant upon the Lord. So there is the feeling that we should turn to Him with all our hearts. But that almost leads us into problems on the other end of the spectrum, where we sit on our thrones and wait for the Lord to save us. It is difficult to balance the two – to fight for what is right and what we need done, knowing full well that our efforts are negligible despite the cost and that victory is in the Lord’s hands. That is where our faith must come in to make up the difference and balance the two.
