It has been said that “there are none so blind as those who refuse to see”. The Morning of the day of the battle of Waterloo, Napoleon was conferring with his general, planning the tactics of the day. After telling him what the infantry should do, he said, “And by tonight Wellington will be in our power.” Napoleon’s general remarked to him, casually, “Man proposes, but God disposes.” Napoleon spoke up rather haughtily, “Napoleon proposes, and Napoleon disposes.”

Stormy weather and other unforeseen events turned the tide of the battle of Waterloo. God accepted Napoleon’s challenge and showed him who “disposes”. (Theodore Engstrom. 227 Heart-Reaching Illustrations. Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1953, p. 137). History tells us that this was Napoleon’s final defeat.
