Is It a Wonder?

Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? -Isaiah 60:8

Try, try, O enemy, to stop one of the Lord’s doves, when he is coming to the windows! You cannot do it. Did not the devil try to stop you, O brother, when you were coming to God? Ah! he did; but it was all in vain. And when you went to join the church, how many difficulties there were in the way! But when you are called to God you will not be afraid, you will fly like a cloud. Ah! the world says we shall stop by-and-by; that all our success is as nothing; that it will soon die away; that it is a mere excitement, and will soon end. Ah! let them talk so, if they please. We are flying like a cloud. We have God within us; we have good within us; we have the might of the Deity within our church; and who is he that shall stop us? We bid the mighty men of this earth come; we bid carnal reason array itself against us; we bid the wisdom of the critic try to stop us. But they cannot do it. The weakness of God is mightier than man; and He who took us from the sheep-folds to lead His people Israel will not desert His David; He who has put us before His people will not cast us away, nor will He leave His church, nor forsake His chosen ones. “Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?”

It is amazing that any man should be saved, if you look at man; it is not amazing if you consider God. May the Lord in His mercy keep us from pride, and also keep us living on Him, believing in His might, and trusting in His power!   ~ C.H. Spurgeon
