Content In Any Condition

“Let Moses be cast into a basket of bulrushes, if God be with him, he shall not be drowned. Let Daniel be cast into the den, if God be with him, God will come between the lion’s teeth and him. Let the three blessed men be cast into the fiery furnace, a fourth shall be with them, and keep them from the hurt of the flame. Let God be with Noah, he shall swim upon the waters; and the greater the waters, the more safe he, and the nearer to heaven. Let God be with us, and we may be content with any condition whatsoever.” — Richard Sibbes, “Works of Richard Sibbes” Vol. 7 (Banner of Truth) p. 393-394

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.

    ” Let God be with us, and we may be content with any condition whatsoever.” Amen. It was that confidence in God that under girded Charles Spurgeon’s unflinching obedience. http://spurgeonwarquotes.wordpress.com/
