Hope for a Delivery


Joel 2:32 "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered…"


"Why do not I call on His name? Why do I run to this neighbor and that when God is so near and will hear my faintest call?  Why do I sit down and devise schemes and invent plans? Why not at once roll myself and my burden upon the Lord?

"My case is urgent, and I do not see how I am to be delivered; but this is no business of mine.  He who makes the promise will find ways and means of keeping it.  It is mine to obey His commands; it is not mine to direct His counsels.  I am His servant, not His solicitor.  I call upon Him, and He will deliver." ~C.H. Spurgeon


I can't improve much on those thoughts, can I?  Wise words of counsel there. 

Now…to put them into practice today! 🙂
