Samuel Morse - "What hath God wrought!"

Numbers 23:23 (KJV)
Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought.

One day a friend of Samuel Morse, inventor of the telegraph, said to him, "Professor, when you were making your experiments, did you ever come to a place not knowing what to do next?"

"More than once," Morse replied, "and whenever I could not see my way clearly, I knelt down and prayed to God for light and understanding."

Then Morse added: "When flattering honors came to me from American and Europe on account of my invention, I never felt I deserved them. I had made a valuable application of electricity, not because I was superior to another man, but solely because God, who meant it for mankind, must reveal it to someone, and was pleased to reveal it to me."

In May, 1844, the first message to be sent over the telegraph, dispatched by Morse himself between Washington and Baltimore, were the words: "What hath God wrought!"

Dear Lord, Help to kneel before you and as You for the guidance that we need. And then let us not forget to give You all the glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
