C.H. Spurgeon: 'I am a pilgrim in the world, but at home in my God!'
"Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God!" Psalm 90:1-2
The Christian knows no change with regard to God.
He himself may be rich today—and poor tomorrow,
he may be sickly today—and well tomorrow,
he may be in happiness today—tomorrow he may be distressed;
but there is never any change with regard to his relationship to God.
If He loved me yesterday—then He loves me today. My unmoving mansion of rest, is my blessed Lord.
Let prospects be ruined,
let hopes be blasted,
let joy be withered,
let mildews destroy everything—
I have lost nothing of what I have in God. He is "my strong habitation where unto I can continually resort." I am a pilgrim in the world, but at home in my God. In the earth I wander, but in God I dwell in a quiet habitation.
"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign LORD is my strength!" Habakkuk 3:17-19
