Facing Suffering in a New Way

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones:

We must think of suffering in a new way, we must face everything in a new way. And the way in which we face it all is by reminding ourselves that the Holy Spirit is in us. There is the future, there is the high calling, there is the persecution, there is the opposition, there is the enemy. I see it all. I must admit also that I am weak, that I lack the necessary powers and propensities. But instead of stopping there . . . I say, ‘But the Spirit of God is in me. God has given me his Holy Spirit.’ . . . What matters . . . is not what is true of us but what is true of Him. (I highly recommend – Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure)

  1. Thank you for this quote. It fits the things am struggling with right now – God uses everything to reach us, so that we can know His steadfastness and great love. Even people on wordpress at 5:30 in the morning.
