False Teachers By Shai Linne

God is too Good to be Unkind and He is too Wise to be Mistaken

God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart. When you are so weak that you cannot do much more than cry, you coin diamonds with both your eyes. The sweetest prayers God ever hears are the groans and sighs of those who have no hope in anything but his love.
Charles Spurgeon

Think about the first line because it speaks to who God is. God is not unkind to you and God never makes a mistake concerning you regardless of what it looks like or how it feels. The sweetest prayers sounds like some of my prayers lately sometimes I feel that I have no hope in anything but God's love for me. In the third movie in The Lord of the Rings, "The Return of the King" Elrond the Elf King comes to Aragorn to bring him the sword that had been broken but had been reforged, he tells him that the dead men that live in the mountain can provide Aragorn with a great army and says "They will listen to the King of Gondor" The last thing Elrond says is "I give hope to men" Aragorn replies "I keep none for myself"

That's how I feel at times and why this quote from Spurgeon really speaks to me, God hears the groans and sighs of those who have no hope in anything but his love.
