The following is an excerpt from a Charles Spurgeon devotional he wrote in summation of Matthew 15:21-28 – The Faith of the Canaanite Woman. A dear friend of mine shared the quote (below) and I located and read the entire devotional piece at:
If you have a few moments, I would recommend you read the entire piece, as well as, Matthew 15:21-28, for context.
This is the royal road to comfort. Great thoughts of your sin alone will drive you to despair; but great thoughts of Christ will pilot you into the haven of peace.
These are wise words, spoken/written by a wise man. Spurgeon reminds us Christ has unimaginable power in overcoming anything we might consider impossible. After all, Christ overcame The Cross. We often quote from scripture (i.e. Philippians 4:13) “I can do everything through (H)im who gives me strength,” but perhaps we sometimes forget, He can do all things!
Have faith, my friends, in Jesus. At your lowest point, seek Him in the midst of your darkness, for He is nigh. Think “great thoughts of Christ.”
