Here is a great thought from Spurgeon about the work of God in our lives personally:
It is certainly a very delightful thing to mark the hand of God in the lives of ancient saints. How profitable an occupation to observe God’s goodness in delivering David out of the jaw of the lion and the paw of the bear; His mercy in passing by the transgression, iniquity, and sin of Manasseh; His faithfulness in keeping the covenant made with Abraham; or His interposition on the behalf of the dying Hezekiah.
But, beloved, would it not be even more interesting and profitable for us to remark the hand of God inour own lives? Ought we not look upon our own history as being at least as full of God, as full of His goodness and of His truth, as much a proof of His faithfulness and veracity as the lives of any of the saints who have gone before? I think we do our Lord an injustice when we suppose that He wrought all His might acts in the days of yore, and showed Himself strong for those in the early time, but does not perform wonders or lay bare His arm for the saints that are now upon the earth.
Let us review, I say, our own diaries. Surely in theses modern pages we may discover some happy incidents, refreshing to ourselves and glorifying to our God. Have you had no deliverances? Have you passed through no rivers, supported by the Divine presence? Have you walked though no fires unharmed? Have you not been saved in six troubles? Yea, in seven has not Jehovah helped you? Have you had no manifestations? The God that spoke to Abraham at Mamre, has He never spoken to you? The Angel that wrestled with Jacob at Peniel, has He ever wrestled with you? He that stood in the fiery furnace with the three holy children, has He never trodden the coals at your side?
O beloved, He has manifested Himself unto us as He does unto the world. Forget not these manifestations; fail not to rejoice in them! Surely, beloved, the goodness of God of old has been repeated unto us.
