Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee. (Proverb 20:22)
Yet another mountain of the Lord to be climbed daily. Why do I compare this proverb to a mountain? When someone is about to climb a mountain, they will first take a long look at its ascent. Then choose the path they feel will accomplish the journey's purpose, which is to reach the top. Equipment will be needed along with a good combination of physical and mental health. Why? Because there will be threatening dangers on the way. A full knowledge of mountain climbing procedures will not be enough. The climber must know how to apply this knowledge correctly; sometimes under adverse or unexpected conditions. Then comes the greatest help of all, God's blessings!
The closer we come to God, the higher the climb; the more dangerous the fall, the more abundant the grace. Praise the Lord!
