Happy Storm

September 26, 2010

In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on his God alone. When his vessel is on its beam-ends, and no human deliverance can avail—he must simply and entirely trust himself to the providence and care of God. Happy storm—that wrecks a man on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane—that drives the soul to God and God alone! . . . When a man is so poor, so friendless, so helpless that he has nowhere else to turn—he flies into his Father’s arms, and is blessedly clasped therein! . . . Oh, tempest-tossed believer—it is a happy trouble which drives thee to thy Father!

– Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening, Morning, August 31

    Good it would be to do that when the sea is calm!
