Re: Chaplains Corner
Many people are perplexed when they look at the Pyramids; how could those massive structures have been built by pre-industrial man?
In more modern examples, I have stood in awe at Mt. Rushmore, and could not imagine how a work of art on such a grand scale could have been made. I have ridden to the top of the St. Louis Arch, and looked out the windows straight down to the ground, with no support in the center of the vast span of metal. If I were asked if such a structure could be built, I would have said no. Judy and I have driven the road through Polychrome Pass in what used to be Mt. McKinley Park, a narrow road that was cut into the face of a vertical cliff for MANY miles. I tried to imagine how that road had been carved in the first place, and I failed.
I know you have had similar experiences, where you have looked at things that had been built and were in awe of the ones that had actually done the work on them!
All of these things should be to us a cheering memory when our task is more than usually difficult. If anything ought to be done it shall be done. As Spurgeon said, “With God in front, we shall soon leave difficulties in the rear, transformed into memorials of victory.”
Zechariah 4:6 (KJV); "Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts."
Luke 18:27 (KJV); "And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."
1 John 5:4 (KJV); "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
No matter what your task today, brother – no matter what the difficulty of it, sister – with God on your side, you WILL NOT fail!
May God bless each of you as you face difficult things.
