God Will Answer
"He will fulfill the desire of them that fear Him: He also will hear their cry, and will save them"
Psalm 145:19
18
February
His own Spirit has wrought this desire in us, and therefore He will answer it...
C. H. Spurgeon
His own Spirit has wrought this desire in us, and therefore He will answer it. It is His own life within which prompts the cry, and therefore He will hear it. Those who fear Him are men under the holiest influence, and, therefore, their desire is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Like Daniel, they are men of desires, and the LORD will cause them to realize their aspirations. Holy desires are grace in the blade, and the heavenly Husbandman will cultivate them till they come to the full corn in the ear. God-fearing men desire to be holy, to be useful, to be a blessing to others, and so to honor their LORD. They desire supplies for their need, help under burdens, guidance in perplexity, deliverance in distress; and sometimes this desire is so strong and their case so pressing that they cry out in agony like little children in pain, and then the LORD works most comprehensively and does all that is needful according to this Word -- "and will save them." Yes, if we fear God, we have nothing else to fear; if we cry to the LORD, our salvation is certain. Let the reader lay this text on his tongue and keep it in his mouth all the day, and it will be to him as "a wafer made with honey."
Faith's Checkbook was written by Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834 - 92). C. H. Spurgeon was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000 - all in the days before electronic amplification.
