Passivity or call it by an uglier word, laziness is the cause of half my defeat. I need never be defeated as I know quite well. Victory all the rest of the day… When you are weak and feel unable to free yourself from the power of sin – just up and sing as song or shout a determined note of defiance against the enemy and then roll up your sleevs and do some good Lisu study. Lack of this spirit brings defeat. Moral:
Try to find God’s balance between prayer and work.
