The axle!

by Spurgeon-

You know in a wheel there is one portion that never
turns around, that stands steadfast- and that is the axle.

So in God's providence, there is an axle which never moves.

Christian, here is a sweet thought for you--
your state is ever changing.
Sometimes you are exalted and sometimes depressed,
yet there is an unmoving point in your state.
What is that axle?
What is the pivot upon which all the machinery revolves?
It is the axle of God's everlasting love towards His people!

The exterior of the wheel is changing,
but the center stands forever fixed.

Other things may move, but God's love never moves.
It is the axle of the wheel, and will endure.
