Jeremiah Burroughs Provides Some Helpful Attributes for Knowing, Our Pleading to God When Afflicted is Not Actually Discontentedness

August 3, 2015

 

"God is thus far mercifully indulgent to our weakness, and he will not take it ill at our hands, if by earnest and importunate prayer we seek unto him for deliverance,  till we know his good pleasure therein. And certainly thus seeking for help with such a submission, and holy resignation of spirit, to be delivered when God will, and as God will, and how God will; so that our wills are melted into the will of God, this is no opposition to the quietness which God requires in a contented spirit."
