”Forget and Forgive” ~ "Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee." — Proverbs 20:22 KJV

 

Series ~ Faith's Checkbook by Spurgeon

 

Forget and Forgive

“Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.”

Proverbs 20:22

    Be not in haste. Let anger cool down. Say nothing and do nothing to avenge yourself. You will be sure to act unwisely if you take up the cudgels and fight your own battles; and, certainly, you will not show the spirit of the LORD Jesus. It is nobler to forgive and let the offense pass. To let an injury rankle in your bosom and to meditate revenge is to keep old wounds open and to make new ones. Better forget and forgive. [If They Repent- WStS]. Peradventure, you say that you must do something or be a great loser; then do what this morning’s promise advises: “Wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.” This advice will not cost you money but is worth far more, Be calm and quiet. Wait upon the LORD; tell Him your grievance; spread Rabshakeh’s letter before the LORD, and this of itself will be an ease to your burdened mind. Besides, there is the promise “He shall save thee.” God will find a way of deliverance for you. How He will do it neither you nor I can guess, but do it He will. If the LORD saves you, this will be a deal better than getting into petty quarrels and covering yourself with filth by wrestling with the unclean. Be no more angry. Leave your suit with the Judge of all. Charles Haddon Spurgeon ~ Faith’s Checkbook by Spurgeon ~ Audio

”Grow in Grace, and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” — 2 Peter 3:18 KJV

''Grow in Grace, and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.'' — 2 Peter 3.18 KJV

”Grow in Grace, and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” — 2 Peter 3:18 KJV

 

“Grow in Grace,

and in the Knowledge of our Lord and

Saviour Jesus Christ.”

2 Peter 3:18 KJV 

     “Grow in grace”–not in one grace only, but in all grace. Grow in that root-grace, faith. Believe the promises more firmly than you have done. Let faith increase in fulness, constancy, simplicity. Grow also in love. Ask that your love may become extended, more intense, more practical, influencing every thought, word, and deed. Grow likewise in humility. Seek to lie very low, and know more of your own nothingness. As you grow downward in humility, seek also to grow upward–having nearer approaches to God in prayer and more intimate fellowship with Jesus. May God the Holy Spirit enable you to “grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour.” He who grows not in the knowledge of Jesus, refuses to be blessed. To know Him is “life eternal,” and to advance in the knowledge of Him is to increase in happiness. He who does not long to know more of Christ, knows nothing of Him yet. Whoever hath sipped this wine will thirst for more, for although Christ doth satisfy, yet it is such a satisfaction, that the appetite is not cloyed, but whetted. If you know the love of Jesus–as the hart panteth for the water-brooks, so will you pant after deeper draughts of His love. If you do not desire to know Him better, then you love Him not, for love always cries, “Nearer, nearer.” Absence from Christ is hell; but the presence of Jesus is heaven. Rest not then content without an increasing acquaintance with Jesus. Seek to know more of Him in His divine nature, in His human relationship, in His finished work, in His death, in His resurrection, in His present glorious intercession, and in His future royal advent. Abide hard by the Cross, and search the mystery of His wounds. An increase of love to Jesus, and a more perfect apprehension of His love to us is one of the best tests of growth in grace.
