James Meikle – We Also Rejoice In Our Afflictions (Christian devotional)

Romans 5:3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Solitude Sweetened was written by JAMES MEIKLE, a surgeon in the Royal Navy. Most of these meditations were written on board a warship, between the years of 1757–1760. This book is a wonderful example of the practical outworkings of a sound Biblical theology. The doctrines of God’s sovereignty in the salvation of His people, and His providential care for them, took deep root in the mind and heart of James Meikle. Ordinary events became occasions for spiritual instruction, which he recorded in a series of brief essays, or meditations. The failure of carefully made plans reminded him that God’s ways are not our ways, and that His timing is best. The occasion of slander reminded him that God had a purpose in sending it, and that he should not seek revenge. The need for eyeglasses reminded him that he was growing older, and nearing his journey’s end, and would soon arrive at his Father’s house. The text has been revised for contemporary readers. It is “must reading” for our generation!
