Wisdom of the Ages – Stephen Charnock

Wisdom of the Ages

Stephen Charnock

“In regard of God, patience is a submission to His sovereignty. To endure a trial, simply because we cannot avoid or resist it, is not Christian patience. But to humbly submit because it is the will of God to inflict the trial, to be silent because the sovereignty of God orders it – is true godly patience”
Stephen Charnock

“In your patience possess ye your souls”
Luke 21:19

Wisdom of the Ages

“The Divine wisdom has given us prayer, not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth, but as a means whereby we learn to do without them; not as a means whereby we escape evil, but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it”
– F.W. Robertson

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good”
– Romans 12:21
