Finding Satisfaction

“Nothing can satisfy the entire man but the Lord’s love and the Lord’s own self…To embrace the Lord Jesus, to rest in His love and be full assured of our union with Him–this is all in all. Dear reader, you do not need to try empty paths to find out whether they are better than the Christian’s. If you roam the universe, you will not find another friend like Jesus; if you could have the comforts of life but lost your Savior, you would be wretched; but if you win Christ, then you could rot in a dungeon and even there find peace. If you live in obscurity or die hungry, you will still be satisfied with favor and will be full of the goodness of the Lord.”–C.H. Spurgeon

  1. “The great design God has in afflicting you is to break and humble your heart; and will you maintain a spirit quite opposite to the work of God? For you to murmur and be discontented is to resist the work of God. God is doing you good if you could see it and if He is pleased to sanctify your affliction to break that hard heart of yours and humble that proud spirit of yours, it would be the greatest mercy that you ever had in your life.” Jeremiah Burroughs

  2. A profoundly rich truth, Matt. A reminder I very often need to hear. Thank you for sharing it.
