A Methodist minister tells a pretty story of his little girl, who, wishing to speak to him one day when he was in his study, came up the stairs, and, finding the door closed, put her small hand on the door knob.
The child’s hand was too tiny to grasp the handle firmly enough to turn it. To her delight, however, the handle turned, the door opened, and she ran into the study, exclaiming: ‘Oh, Daddy, I have opened the door all by myself!’
She was all unaware that her father, hearing her trying to open the door, had quietly gotten up
from his chair and turned the handle from the inside.
Thus God helps us when we do our best, and he makes the impossible possible.
‘I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.’
