Spurgeon Quotes 4

Health is the greatest temporal blessing that God ever sends us besides sickness, which is far better.

There is no attribute of God more comforting to His children than the doctrine of Divine Sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe troubles, they believe that Sovereignty has ordained all their afflictions, that Sovereignty overrules them, and that Sovereignty will sanctify them all.

I bear my witness that the worst days I have ever had, have turned out to be my best days. And when God has seemed most cruel to me, He has then been most kind. If there is anything in this world for which I would bless him more than for anything else it is for pain and affliction. I am sure that in these things, the richest tenderest love has been manifested to me. Our Father's wagons rumble most heavily, when they are bringing us the richest freight of the bullion of His grace. 

Love letters from Heaven are often sent in black-edged envelopes! 

I have got more good out of my afflictions, than out of all my prosperity! I would not be without a cross for all the world!

I have learned to kiss the stormy waves which throw me up against the Rock of Ages!

Those who dive in the sea of affliction bring up rare pearls!

The Lord gets His best soldiers, out of the highlands of affliction.

The tears of affliction, are often needed to keep the eye of faith bright.

The best remedy for affliction, is submitting to God's providence. 

To be one of the Lord's saved ones is joy enough to bear up the heart under every affliction! 

The discerning of the hand of God in all our afflictions, is a sweet lesson in the school of experience.

What can't be cured, must be endured!

[Charles H. Spurgeon]
