Spurgeon: Trials

How Spurgeon saw his own pain and suffering…

Spurgeon saw that every trial was from God’s loving and good hand (Gen 50:20; Job 1:21-22; Job 2:10; Lam 3:37-38; Amos 3:6; Acts 14:23; 1Peter 4:12-13).

He saw that one reason God brought trials was to give him more grace — more experienced nearness to Christ. Spurgeon said trials brought him far more grace than ease and comfort did (Psa 119:67; Rom 5:3-5; 2Co 12:9-10; Heb 12:10; James 1:2-4; 1Peter 1:6-7).

Even though he believed God brought the trials, Spurgeon still prayed — passionately and earnestly — that God would remove them. And sometimes God did. (John 9:2-3; 2Co 12:8-9; James 5:14-16).
