The Benefit of Storms – JC Ryle

Your trials may be many and great. Your cross may be very heavy. But the business of your soul is all conducted according to an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and sure. All things are working together for your good. Your sorrows are only purifying your soul for glory; your bereavements are only fashioning you as a polished stone for the temple above, made without hands. From whatever quarter the storms blow, they only drive you nearer to heaven! Whatever weather you may go through it is only ripening you for the garner of God. Your best things are quite safe.

    Take encouragement and comfort in James 1 v 2 – 4. ‘My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

    Trials for for our benefit and good, to the glory of God. Amen.

  2. Siew-Leng says:

    I Peter 5 v 10, 11 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

    To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

  3. JCF says:

    (Romans 8:35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? — NO ONE! (Romans 12:12) Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. (Romans 8:18) For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. (Hebrew 13:14) For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. — SUFFER WELL 🙂 Amen!
