Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 22nd August

Wrath to God’s Glory

Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained. (Psalm 76:10)

Wicked men will be wrathful. If we were of the world, the world would love its own. Our comfort is that the wrath of man shall be made to rebound to the glory of God. When in their wrath, the wicked crucified the Son of God, they were unwittingly fulfilling the divine purpose, and in a thousand cases the willfulness of the ungodly is doing the same. They think themselves free, but like convicts in chains they are unconsciously working out the decrees of the Almighty.

Nothing will come of their wrath which can do us real harm. Meanwhile, the Lord restrains the more furious wrath of the enemy. He is like a miller who holds back the mass of the water in the stream, and what He does allow to flow, He uses for the turning of His wheel. Let us not sigh, but sing. All is well, however hard the wind blows.
