Grace: Equal to Our Day
Spurgeon's Illustration Collection
Whenever the Lord sends his servants to do extraordinary work he always gives them extraordinary strength; or if puts them to unusual suffering he gives them unusual patience. When we enter upon war with some petty New Zealand chief, our troops expect to have their charges defrayed, id accordingly we pay them gold by thousands, as their expenses may require; but when an army marches against a rim monarch, in an unknown country, who has insulted the British flag, we pay, as we know to our cost, not by thousands but by millions. And thus, if God calls us to common and ordinary trials, he will defray the charges of our warfare by thousands, but if he commands us to an unusual struggle with some tremendous foe, he will discharge the liabilities of our war by millions, according to the riches of his grace in which he has abounded towards us through Christ Jesus.
