God’s Chariots

God’s Chariots

Hannah Whitehall Smith, quotes someone as stating:”Earthly cares are a heavenly discipline.’ but they are even something better than discipline–they are God’s chariots, sent to take the soul to its high
places of triumph.”

Hummmm? What a thought to think about. Sometimes I can tell you they do not look like chariots to me. Sometimes to me they look like enemies, sufferings, trials, defeats, misunderstandings, disappointments,

But if we would realize and see them as they really are, we should recognize them as chariots of triumph in which we may ride to those very heights of victory for which our souls have been longing and praying.

Looking at a couple of Biblical examples: Mary and Martha could not understand Jesus’ delay. Why did He not come? Why did their beloved brother Lazarus have to die?

And Abraham could not understand why God should ask that he sacrifice his
son Isaac.

Moses could not understand why God kept him 40 years in the wilderness.

Joseph could not understand his brother’ cruelty.

I have learned through the years that it is not always given to us to understand while we are in the middle of our particular situation.

I know that at very turbulent times in my life, Psalm 43:5, sprang into meaning for me. “Midnight hours” as we have heard the old folks say, yes that midnight hour I have experienced it. It appeared that every door had closed tightly in my face, that God was silent, and that He would keep me
waiting forever for the answers I do desperately needed to hear.

Psalm 43:5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

But, I soon learned that in that Midnight hour when things seemed impossible that help would come, guess what? It did come. It came from God’s own resources. See, God is not confined.

Whatever our necessities, however great our difficulties, and though to all appearances help is impossible, I promise you that God will show up.

Our hope should stand in God and on His Word. And yes, in the (midnight hour,) the right time, God’s time, help will come.

So, whatever you maybe facing, stand, just stand, and believe and wait on your Heavenly Father to come and step in, and lift you up and take care of you.

I promise you the wait will be worth it all.

Love, Blessings, and Prayers,
Pastor Pat Aman
