Difficult times

This quote from Charles Spurgeon is for those Christians going through difficult times in their lives.

Despair whispers, “Lie down and die; give it all up.”
Cowardice says, “Retreat; go back to the worldling’s way of action. You cannot play the Christian’s part; it is too difficult. Relinquish your principles.”
Precipitancy cries, “Do someting; stir yourself. To stand still and wait is sheer idleness.”
Presumption boasts, “If the sea be before you, march into it, and expect a miracle.”

But faith listens neither to Presumption nor to Despair nor to Cowardice nor to Precipitancy, but it hears God say, “Stand still,” and immovable as a rock it stands.”
