God will not lift a little finger for you, please know, because whatever he has to do, he has done it. His work is not pending. He has done a fantastic job over the creation, isn’t it? He has done a fantastic job. There is nothing to complain. He has put himself into you; beyond that he cannot do anything. Now you go on asking, ‘O god! – Give me money, give me that.’ God will not do anything because his job is finished now it is your job.
Let us say, you are in the football team for India for the next world cup and you are with the coach. He puts everything into you; everything he knows about football, he puts them into you. So many years of intense training happens and everything that you need to know about football you came to know. Now the time to play the match has come and you are in the football field. When the ball comes to you, if you look at the coach, what to do!
That’s what you are doing now. God has done everything he can do for you. He created a fantastic world for you that you would never imagine. He has put his own being into you in so many ways. And now, it is your time to play the game. But you look at God and ask, ‘take care of my children, take care of my business, property, make me pass my examination.’ If you are such who cannot pass an examination, why join college or school. If you are such an idiot, you cannot run a business, why do you start the business? If you are such a fool, you cannot bear your children, why did you bear them? He has given you the intelligence; he has given you the body; he has given you everything to run the stupid things in life, isn’t it?
Everything that you need now has been given. So, it is your turn to play the game now. Match has started, coach cannot interfere now.
