Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree

~ Isa 55:13

Difficulties and obstacles are God’s challenges to faith. When hindrances confront us in the path of duty we are to recognize them as vessels for faith to fill with the fulness and all–sufficiency of Jesus, and as we go forward, simply and fully trusting Him, we may be tested, we may have to wait and let patience have her perfect work, but we shall surely find at last the stone rolled away, and the Lord waiting to render unto us double for our time of testing, and fulfill the promise, Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, instead of the brier the myrtle tree, and it shall be to the Lord for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Oft there comes a wondrous message  
When my hopes are growing dim;  
I can hear it through the darkness,  
Like some sweet and far–off hymn.  
Nothing is too hard for Jesus,  
No man can work like Him.  

When my way is closed in darkness  
And my foes are fierce and grim,  
Still it sings above the conflict  
Like some glad, victorious hymn:  
Nothing is too hard for Jesus,  
No man can work like Him.
