God Too Much

"Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who assail me, from my mortal enemies who surround me."1

Napoleon Bonaparte was the greatest general of his day and one of the greatest of all time. He was also an astute politician with an unconquerable will to win. His goal was to rule the world and he seemed well on his way to achieving that goal.

History records how he boasted, "Russia next, then Britain, and Napoleon shall rule the world."

When leading his army en route to conquer Russia, one tiny snowflake fell on Napoleon, "Then another, and another, and another, and they kept on falling until Napoleon's proud army was reeling back, broken and defeated" not by an enemy's army nor even a single shot, but by a mass of tiny snowflakes. Napoleon's response? "God almighty was too much for me."

It's comforting to know that God is in control no matter what, and that this world and the life of each of us who put our trust in him are in his hands.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, again today I commit and trust my life and way to you as I do that of my (name your loved ones). 'O that you would bless us wonderfully. Please be with us in everything we do. Greatly expand our borders, and keep us from all evil and disaster.'2 Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Psalm 17:7-9 (NIV).
2. Prayer from 1 Chronicles 4:10.
