God Takes Away Mercies So That We Would Run To Him

It is strange that when God gives his children mercies, they generally set their hearts more on the mercies than on the Giver of them. But when the night comes, and he sweeps all the mercies away, then at once they each say, ?Now, my God, I have nothing to sing of but thee; I must come to thee, and to thee only.?

Charles Spurgeon
