"Lord Krsna was not very pleasing to the demons when He was present in Vrindavana, but the six Gosvamis were pleasing to the demons when they were present in Vrindavana. That is the beauty of the Lord's dealings with His devotees; sometimes the Lord gives more credit to His devotees than He takes for Himself. For instance, on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra, Lord Krsna fought simply by giving directions. Yet it was Arjuna who took the credit for fighting. Nimitta-matram bhava savyasacin: 'You, O Savyasaci (Arjuna), can be but an instrument in the fight.' (Bg. 11.33) Everything was arranged by the Lord, but the credit of victory was given to Arjuna. Similarly, in the Krsna consciousness movement, everything is happening according to the predictions of Lord Caitanya, but the credit goes to Lord Caitanya's sincere servants."

(Srimad-Bhagavatam, 4.24.45-46, Purport)
