C.H. Spurgeon

“God worketh as he pleases. He explains not his methods, but bids us believe his promises. The most noxious elements may appear to be east into the alembic, and the smoke of a furnace may arise in the process, but the highest good is distilled in due time. At no moment in the forming of things would doubt be satisfied with them, for its criticisms are those of ignorance; but the believing man refrains from judging unfinished work. His eye is prophetic, and he sees the good which is to be in the end, and therefore plucks no apple till it is ripe. Hurry and worry, fret and sweat, are for short-sighted passion; but rest and quiet, force and prudence, are with strong confidence.”
