: I found this one while reading the bible. Jehovah God told Joshua to command the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant to dip there feet in the water and it would dry up. (Joshua 3:8,15) So they could have labored for hours carrying that ark to the banks of the Jordan but if they weren't willing to get their feet wet Jehovah would not have dried up the Jordan.

Abe always complained that he never won the lottery. He prayed and prayed, and then got angry that God wouldn't help him to win.
Finally, he got a message from above " YOU'VE GOT TO WORK WITH ME, ABE. BUY A TICKET!"
Merry Christmas .. and thanks for working with me.
