Spurgeon is one of my favorite Reformers. He has a ton of powerful quotes, and more importantly, they give glory and credit to God. Listening to this one was definitely a blessing in timing.
Spurgeon makes the point that the spirit God places within us delights in Him. The human nature is what struggles to delight in God.
So very often, we delight in the mercy of God, that is, the creation, not the Creator. In times of good, when we give thanks, often it’s for what we have been given (material things, the creation.) I found that very powerful.
One of my favorite quotes is that he says a cage bird sings best for God. Trials help us delight in God. Trials force us out of being comfortable in the creation, and learn how to be comfortable with the Creator.
