After the construction of the Titanic, a reporter asked the builder how safe the Titanic would be. With a sarcastic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it" The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic.
There are many great people who has had thoughts on the same line. That Is look what I have done, and I did it all my self. There is nothing that can derail my well laid plans.
If we read in the Bible there was a man much on the order of the fellow that drew up the plans for the Titanic. He was a very important man we read about in the Bible. He was a great King. The name is Nebuchadnezzar. Now old Neb had been kicked down a little from time to time, and learned about the one we call God. One would think after a
few kick downs on things he tried to do, he would have learned something. But no he got it in his mind, every thing he did or thought of was just great. Look at all I have, and how much power I have. I did it all on my own. People better do as I say or it is a trip to the furnace, or lions den for them. Well one day he found he lost it all. His worldly goods were no more, he was out in the field eating grass, like an animal. He didn't know the time of day, in fact he didn't know anything. His mind was gone. Yesterday, he had a great mind, much power, and worldly goods. Today nothing, it all was taken in a
We may think we did something, we have so much, we are so smart, we have it all, but do we? One can work all their life, and think at last they have gained the mountain top, only to find out it's lost.
The man that drew up the plans, and built the Titanic, forgot the power of God. He may have worked night and day on the plans, and the plans was followed to the letter. But there was the unknown factor. The unknown factor in this case was God who makes ice bergs. And the iceberg can sink a ship, even God can't sink. I am just using the words the man said. Never say God can't do something. In this case he made the ice. A chunk of ice broke off, and set sail to meet up with an unsinkable ship made by man. The ship lost the war, it is now along with the great man that drew up the plans, at the bottom of the sea.
The ice berg sailed on.
There has been other great ships built that are now at the bottom of the water some where. I remember a battle in World War Two. A great warship in company with another battle wagon, and three smaller warships set out one day from Germany. The German Admiral boasted, there never has been such a fleet to set sail with so much power. There is nothing that can stand up to the power of these five ships. The Bismark was the big ship.
England sent out the pride of dear old England The Hood, and the Prince of Wales to do battle. One shell from the Bismark, and the pride of dear old England blew up. Prince of Wales turned and ran.
Bismark sailed on, but the British dogged it, thanks to an American who spotted it in the fog. Then old, out dated planes with torpedoes made a couple hits on it. It was out of control on it's path of travel. Soon other warships made hits on it. Wasn't long till the great ship went to the bottom along with the man who said never was a more powerful fleet to sail, nothing could stop him and his fleet. Never say never. There is always God to have his say
