Together with God Doing Great Things (Morning)
John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
When he heard that his close friend became the Wāli of Egypt, Ferdinand de Lesseps went his way to Cairo and congratulated him personally. In Alexandria, both Mohamed Sa’id Pasha and Ferdinand de Lesseps met on 13 November 1854. They both discussed many things, especially Ferdinand who had a grand plan to connect the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. A behemoth project that had never been tried before, a 193 km canal. He wanted to shorten the distance and improve safety for those who sailed from Europe to Asia and vice versa. When Mohamed Sa’id Pasha heard about this he agreed.
Five years after their first meeting, the Suez’ canal project began. Ferdinand faced much opposition especially because Great Britain thought the canal would be detrimental to their economy, because of this the project was halted for over two years. After ten years of chipping the Suez isthmus, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea finally met each other. Without their supports, Ferdinand could never accomplish this engineering feat. But he knew what to do and where to seek help, he knew he needed support and the correct one.
In every aspect of our lives, we need support. No man is an island. If you are going to do something great, you must have a strong support system. That’s our Father’s role in our lives because aside from supporting us He also concerns Himself with our well-being, our dreams, and our future. All we have to do is come and ask for His support. He will send His Holy Spirit to aid us in our endeavor.
Our support must be WELL BUILT so that we may do GREAT things.
1. Why do we need a strong foundation to do something great?
2. Do you have strong support? Then how does it affect you?
3. What will you do to acquire a strong support system and do many great things in your life?
“Jesus Christ our LORD, we are thankful for Your faithful assistance in our lives. We need You to be our support and our foundation. Because we know with You we can do great things. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
