This week’s Soul Food for Friday comes from Charles Spurgeon. Evangelical Christians know him as the prince of preachers. He preached in England in the 19th century. Some pastors still use his sermons.
I’m not one of them, but I do use some of his quotes from time to time, and this week soul food for Friday is my favorite Spurgeon quote. “I cannot always trace God’s hand, but I can always trust God’s heart.”
Those words bring great comfort when life doesn’t goes as plan or seems out of control or the latest tragedy/crisis is happening. Spurgeon’s words remind me of the promise of Immanuel — God with us. Even more this God who is with us is there to bring out the best in us.
When the world seems out of control, I trust the one who holds the world and even you and me in His hands.
