As well might a babe step between the railroad tracks!
(Arthur Pink, "The Godhood of God")
"All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of Heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back His hand or say to Him: What have you done?" Daniel 4:35
As well might a worm seek to resist the tread of an elephant;
as well might a babe step between the railroad tracks and attempt to push back the on-rushing train;
as well might a child seek to prevent the ocean from rolling —
as for a creature to try and resist the outworking of the purpose of the Lord God!
Ah, my reader, this is the first great lesson we have to learn:
that God is the Creator — and we are the creature;
that He is the Potter — and we are the clay!
"O LORD, God of our fathers, are you not the God who is in Heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you!" 2 Chronicles 20:6
