Too wise to err and too good to be unkind!
The following is from Spurgeonís sermon,
"HEART'S-EASE" NO. 647. Psalm 112:7.
The worst calamity is the wisest and the kindest
thing that could occur to me, if God ordains it.
"We know that all things work together
for good to those who love God."
The Christian does not merely hold this as a
theory, but he knows it as a matter of fact.
Every thing has worked for good as yet-- the
poisonous drugs that have been mixed in the
compound have nevertheless worked the cure.
The sharp cuts of the lancet have cleansed out
the proud flesh and facilitated the healing.
Every event as yet has worked out the most divinely
blessed results. And so, believing this-- that God rules
it, that God rules wisely, that God brings good out of
evil, the believerís heart is fixed and he is well prepared.
Here, bring me whatever cup you will, my Father fills
them all and I will drink them as He sends them, not
merely with resignation, but with sanctified delight.
Send me what You will, my God, so long as it comes
from You- never was that a bad portion which came
from Your table to any one of Your children.
My Father, write what You will concerning Your child,
I will not seek to pry between the folded leaves, but
I will patiently hope and quietly wait as leaf by leaf
is unfolded, knowing You are too wise to err and too
good to be unkind.
