Pray to God that He will make you a part of Himself; that He will look upon you with love and compassion and mercy; that He will strengthen you in all your weaknesses, and cleanse you from all your uncleannesses. This is the only hope. This is the only peace. Of course we must do our part. God plays no favorites. He has told us exactly whom He will favor, and whom He will not. For us, our part is very big. It is everything: total submission, total dedication of the life, total service; nothing less will do. But, though big for us, it is such a small part of the whole. God's part in the process is so great in comparison that our part, though vital, is really nothing at all. But our little part is the essential key that activates God's mighty and glorious part. So He wills. First He calls, and waits. Then we answer, with all our heart and love. Then He puts into motion His tremendous transforming power, and totally absorbs us into Him. "It is God that worketh in you, to will and to do."
