When I was about 4 years old, I loved going to our backyard every afternoon. What was I doing? I was observing the different kinds of insects I could find, remembering how many feet each insect has, knowing what food they eat and where they live, etc.
When I saw an army of ants, I noticed some ants were carrying and pulling a load of food that was bigger than their size. Fast forward, I had the chance to work with botanists and other scientists when I was 17 or 18 years old. I learned from them that smaller organisms will always have a higher strength-to-weight ratio than bigger organisms. Ants can carry 10 to 100 times of their weight. I got a clearer explanation when I studied Physics.
If an ant carrying 100 times of its weight were a human, it would be a man carrying a school bus on its head. I can’t even carry a motorcycle on my head much less drag a school bus.
I was awed to an ant’s ability to carry heavy loads. I believe God has a message. When I feel I can’t carry a life’s adversity for one last time, I have to remind myself that I am no less than an ant. Christ’s power is perfect in my weakness.
The POWER of Christ that lives inside me is greater than the weight of the PROBLEM outside me.
When the devil thinks I’m about to give up and says “Can you still carry it on?”, there’s only one answer I could think of – “Feel free to ride on my back.”
