“Look!” exclaimed a boy, who was walking with his father, “they are knocking away the props from under the bridge. What are they doing that for? Will not the bridge fall?”
“They are knocking them away,” replied his father, “that the timbers may rest more firmly upon the storm piers which are now finished.”
Thus God removes all earthly props so that our faith may rest entirely on the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation, and on our Father’s care for each step of our pathway to the glory.
