The other day someone asked me how I was doing. I wish I had given this answer from Charles Spurgeon’s sermon on Psalm 90:1. Whether I am sick or well, preaching or homebound, joyous or depressed, prognosis better or worse, I am as rich in God as I have ever been – He never changes! This paragraph has been a comfort to me this past week – and perhaps it will be for you too.
“’Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling place throughout all generations.’ The Christian knows no change with regard to God. He may be rich today and poor tomorrow; he may be sickly today and well tomorrow; he may be in happiness today, tomorrow he may be distressed; but there is no change with regard to his relationship to God. If He loved me yesterday He loves me today. I am neither better nor worse in God than I ever was. Let prospects be blighted, let hopes be blasted, let joy be withered, let mildews destroy everything, I have lost nothing of what I have in God. He is my strong habitation whereunto I can continually resort. The Christian never becomes poorer, and never grows richer with regard to God. ‘Here’, he can say, ‘’is a thing that can never pass away or change.’”
