The Power in Praising God, by Charles Spurgeon

The Power in Praising God, by Charles Spurgeon

”…But when Job lost everything and yet said ”The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord”(v.21), then the good man shone like a star on a cloudless night.”

”We may sometimes thank God not only by feeling thankful, living thankfully, and speaking out thanks, but by silently blessing Him. This consists of suffering patiently and accepting the bad as well as the good from Jehovah’s hand; it is often better thanksgiving than the noblest psalm that the tongue could express. When you bow down before Him and say, ”’Not My will, but Yours, be done”( Luke 22:42 ), you show Him honor equal to the ”Hallelujahs” of the angels. To feel not only submitted, but willing to be anything or nothing as the Lord will it – this is, in truth, to sing a song to our Well Beloved.”
