On Waiting on the Lord (More Spurgeon)

"The Lord, when he hath given great faith, has been known to try it by long delayings...But we must be careful not to take delays in prayer for denials: God's long-dated bills will be punctually honored; we must not suffer Satan to shake our confidence in the God of truth by pointing to our unanswered prayers. Unanswered prayers are not unheard...Will not the Lord's time be better than thy time? By and by he will comfortably appear, to thy soul's joy, and make thee put away the sackclock and ashes of long waiting, and put on the scarlet and fine linen of full fruition."

CH Spurgeon, Evening by Evening
