Jeremiah Burroughs Understands the Futility in the Things of this World, Compared to the Abiding Love of God

August 26, 2015

 

"...Although my house be not so blessed with health as other mens houses are; although my house be not so, yet he hath made me an everlasting covenant, I am one yet in covenant with God, the Lord hath made with me an everlasting covenant: as for these things in this world, I see they are but momentary, they are not everlasting, I see in a family, when all was well but a week ago, now all is down, and the plague hath swept away a great many of them, and the rest are left in sadness and mourning: we see there is no resting in the things of this world, yet the Lord hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things: I find disorder in my heart, in my family, but the everlasting covenant, that is ordered in all things; yea, and that is sure: A lack, there is no sureness here in these things, I can be sure of nothing here, especially in these times, we know that a man can be sure of little that he hath, who can be sure of his estate?"
