Jeremiah Burroughs Quotes

It is contrary to the worship that is in contentedness.
— Jeremiah Burroughs —

Now this is a mystery to a carnal heart. They can see no such thing; perhaps they think God loves them when he prospers them and makes them rich, but they think God loves them not when he afflicts them. That is a mystery, but grace instructs men in that mystery, grace enables men to see love in the very frown of God's face, and so come to receive contentment.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

Here lies the bottom and root of all contentment, when there is an evenness and proportion between our hearts and our circumstances.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

Now I say that a heart that has no grace, and is not instructed in this mystery of contentment, knows of no way to get contentment, but to have his possessions raised up to his desires; but the Christian has another way to contentment, that is, he can bring his desires down to his possessions, and so he attains his contentment ... The world is infinitely deceived in thinking that contentment lies in having more than we already have. Here lies the bottom and root of all contentment, when there is an evenness and proportion between our hearts and our circumstances. That is why many godly men who are in low position live more sweet and comfortable lives than those who are richer.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

There is more good in contentment, than there is in the thing that you would fain have to cure your discontent ...

— Jeremiah Burroughs

Do not think, Oh, that I were delivered from all these afflictions and troubles here in this world! If you were, then you would have more ease yourself, but this is a way of honoring God, and manifesting the excellence of grace here, when you are in this conflict of temptation, which God shall not have from you in Heaven.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

Thou hast gone on in all thy life hitherto, ever since thou wast born, in a continual opposition to God Himself, unto the infinite Lord, the eternal first being of all the world; thy life hath been nothing but enmity to this God: thou hast as directly opposed, and striven against, and resisted Him, as ever man did oppose, and resist, and strive with another man, and this thou hast done in the whole course of thy life: certainly there is more in this to humble a man than anything that can be spoken to shew him the evil of sin.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

Your mercies are more than your afflictions.

— Jeremiah Burroughs

We should study Christ, and praise and bless God, and have our hearts enlarged for Jesus Christ. This is the duty of believers to whom God has revealed Christ as wonderful, that in their conversations they should hold out the wonderful glory of Jesus Christ. You should so walk before men as to manifest to all the world that your Savior is a wonderful Savior

— Jeremiah Burroughs

When God has given you your heart's desire, what have you done with your heart's desire?

— Jeremiah Burroughs

It is a woman's reason to say I will do such a thing because I will.

— Jeremiah Burroughs
