Entry: Overcoming Obstacles Friday, May 27, 2005

"Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great."
Numbers 13:28

In a famous judgement, Lord Denning said “Be you ever so tall, the law is always above you”. Sometimes, we look on our difficulties as insurmountable. We fail to grasp the fact that the One who can remove the mountain into the midst of the sea will help us overcome the obstacles in our lives. Failure to grasp this cost the Israelites 38 years of misery. We must not fall into the same trap. —Brian Russell

One there is above all others, O how He loves,
His is love beyond a brother’s, o how He loves,
earthly friends may fail or leave us,
one day soothe, the next day grieve us,
but this Friend will ne’er deceive us, O how He loves. —M. Munn
