“Children are a precious gift from God, but much anxiety comes with them. They may be a great joy or a great bitterness to their parents….In all cases, the Word of God gives us one receipt for the curing of all their ills, ‘Bring him unto me.’ O for more agonizing prayer on their behalf while they are yet babes! Sin is there, let our prayers begin to attack it….Never must we cease to pray until they cease to breathe. No case is hopeless while Jesus lives.
The Lord sometimes suffers His people to be driven into a corner that they may experimentally know how necessary He is to them. Ungodly children, when they show us our own powerlessness against the depravity of their hearts, drive us to flee to the strong for strength, and this is a great blessing to us. Whatever our…need may be, let it like a strong current bear us to the ocean of divine love. Jesus can soon remove our sorrow, He delights to comfort us. Let us hasten to Him while He waits to meet us.”
~Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening, September 17, Morning
