“Who can stand before the army of Shiz? Behold, he sweepeth the earth before him.” We each, in our lives, find ourselves facing an impossible situation. How can we stand before the army of Shiz? Whatever the situation that confronts us, we can easily find it so large that it is insurmountable. The difficulties we face sweep the earth before us.
And yet, Shiz ultimately died. His army was ultimately destroyed. Not before damage was done, of course, but his power was not omnipotent. Likewise, we will face our overwhelming challenges in our lives. Damage may be done, we may hurt and we may mourn. But in the end, the opposition that these challenges bring will be brought down low before our Lord if we are willing and capable of remaining true to Him.
