When I was conversing lately with our dear friend, George Muller, he frequently astonished me with the way in which he mentioned that he had for so many months and years asked for such and such a mercy, and praised the Lord for it, as though he actually obtained it. Even in praying for the conversion of a person, as soon as he had begun to intercede, he began also to praise God for the conversion of that person. I think he told us he had in one instance he had already prayed for thirty years and the work was not yet done, yet all the while he had gone on thanking God, because he knew the prayer would be answered.”-C.H. Spurgeon

Thank you for this post Michael! Just a few hours ago I read another quote by Spurgeon which is a perfect “mate” for this one. I put them together at our Reaching Africa’s Unreached web site: http://reachingafricasunreached.org/2012/01/14/travailing-for-souls/
God’s wonderful providence!
Thank you Jacob for the link!
Hello David in Psalm does the same thing .He ask of God .He even complains to God and then thanks God . Note Calvinism is a wicked damnable lie . The Calvinism tulip is a fraud flower of the fools who grow it . Humanity has free will to believe or to not .But the Calvinism have the free will to be foolish . If Paul was here he call you fools just like he did the Galatians . Job being tested show that humans have the freedom to hold to the faith or curse God and died .No point in testing someone if they are mere mind numb robots .. Satan says to God Job follows you because you blessed him so much .Satan surely would know to say Job follow you because he as no free will if Calvinism we true .lolol God blessed Job because he remained faithful . God can bless who he wants . Faith is free will action . The monster God of Calvinism damns people to hell for his own pleasure .As they claim God never wanted them saved .They change the Bible to say Jesus only died for the special people like them . Utter prideful men and women . God love was and is offered to all . They are required to to come to the cross come to Jesus and be saved .It a gift they simply open and receive .Jesus did all the work to produce the gift of grace
Interesting! Both C.H. Spurgeon and G. Muller are Calvinists. They must have been damned!
Correct, they are !
Some of our brothers and sisters don’t understand the doctrine of election.
I pray that we can still be loving and not divide on differences but eagerly await on our Lords return !!!
Faith to move mountains !!! 😇
