CH Spurgeon_____January 6

January 6-Morning {Daily Reading: #Ge 16:1-18:33} {Quick Study: #Ge 15:1-17:27}

“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

{#1Pe 5:7}

It is a happy way of soothing sorrow when we can feel—”HE

careth for me.” Christian! do not dishonour religion by always

wearing a brow of care; come, cast your burden upon your Lord.

You are staggering beneath a weight which your Father would not

feel. What seems to you a crushing burden, would be to him but

as the small dust of the balance. Nothing is so sweet as to

Lie passive in God’s hands,

And know no will but his.

O child of suffering, be thou patient; God has not passed thee

over in his providence. He who is the feeder of sparrows, will

also furnish you with what you need. Sit not down in despair;

hope on, hope ever. Take up the arms of faith against a sea of

trouble, and your opposition shall yet end your distresses.

There is One who careth for you. His eye is fixed on you,

his heart beats with pity for your woe, and his hand omnipotent

shall yet bring you the needed help. The darkest cloud shall

scatter itself in showers of mercy. The blackest gloom shall

give place to the morning. He, if thou art one of his family,

will bind up thy wounds, and heal thy broken heart. Doubt not

his grace because of thy tribulation, but believe that he loveth

thee as much in seasons of trouble as in times of happiness.

What a serene and quiet life might you lead if you would leave

providing to the God of providence! With a little oil in the

cruse, and a handful of meal in the barrel, Elijah outlived the

famine, and you will do the same. If God cares for you, why need

you care too? Can you trust him for your soul, and not for your

body? He has never refused to bear your burdens, he has never

fainted under their weight. Come, then, soul! have done with

fretful care, and leave all thy concerns in the hand of a

gracious God.
