Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
Never failing. "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." (Ps. 73:26)

"When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?" (I Sam. 15:17)

Contemporary church architecture doesn't seek to evoke the majesty of God as it once did. Interesting to ponder how attitudes change over the years.

- the crown at the top of a column,
- a stock of accumulated goods,
- an "upper-case" letter (used above as in "to capitalize",
- and, just to keep it interesting, a city serving as a seat of government; where, incidentally, you are likely to find a building called the capitol. Or the Capitol.

It's interesting to ponder the sheer volume of laws passed over the years as men have labored to rule themselves. It makes me think of a favorite biblical phrase in which Paul articulates God's vision for a day when His law would be written on the fleshy tables of the heart, not in tables of stone (II Cor. 3:3). Possible today as we yield to His Spirit.
