God said to Abraham, “I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees” (Genesis 15:7), meanwhile it was Abraham’s legs that did the long walk.  What does that mean? God needs your legs to get you where He is headed with you. Hearing God in that passage, it would have seemed as if God had carried Abraham in a business-class cloud from Ur of the Chaldees and dropped him off at his next destination.  Still, it was God in the legs of the man.  

Your will and your legs are important to God if you must arrive at your next level, and you do not have forever to be where you should have been since yesterday.  There are battles that God will fight FOR you while you hold your peace (Exodus 14:14; Deuteronomy 1:30), and others that He will only fight WITH you, or fight FOR you but WITH you (Deuteronomy 20:4).  To expect Him to fight FOR you the battle that He will fight WITH you is to make yourself an unfortunate victim.

At the tomb of Lazarus, the power of God was present to restore the dead man back to life in response to days of tears, but that great power awaited the feeble hands of men first to roll away the stone that they had put there (John 11:39).  It took the power of God to get a young prophet’s axe-head to swim back to him from the bottom of the river into which it had fallen, but it needed the hand of the man to pick up that axe-head and put it back where it had fallen from (2 Kings 6:7).  That metal miracle might have sunk back into the bottom of the sea, forever thereafter irretrievable, if the hand of man had failed or delayed.  When Deborah’s little army defeated the mighty forces of King Jabin with his 900 iron chariots commanded by General Sisera, it was said, “God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan,” meanwhile it was “the HAND of the children of Israel” that did the fighting (Judges 4:23-24).  What does that mean?  God needs your legs to cooperate with His plans to get you to your next place of destiny.  Heard prophecies are usually fulfilled through active legs.  God needs your legs to get you where prophecy has indicated.  Amen.
