Walls and Shadows

The gates go down; the huge walls crumble to dust and blow away; the towers of stone dissolve into the earth. Does this kind of demolition sound impossible? It is entirely possible, although it could take centuries. But, among human beings, demolitions just as dramatic as this, and just as unlikely-seeming, occur every day. And they often occur quickly, sometimes instantaneously. These demolitions are healings through divine Spirit.

In some of them, wrongs that seemed impregnable crumble into nothing; disasters that seemed total are turned into triumphs; the "incurable" is cured; the "impossible" happens. And it happens without fanfare, without the crash and casualties of human strife.

It happens, usually, when no one is looking. In healing through divine Spirit, we don't see a victory while we are seeing an enemy.
