Charles Spurgeon on Comfort

Psalm 77:2  “My soul refused to be comforted.”

In the Treasury of David, Spurgeon writes this about the Psalmist’s dilemma:

“He refused some comforts as too weak for his case, others as untrue, others as unhallowed; but chiefly because of distraction, he declined even those grounds of consolation which ought to have been effectual with him.

“It is impossible to comfort those who refuse to be comforted.   You may bring them to the waters of the promise, but who shall make them drink if they will not do so?…There are times when we are suspicious of good news and are not to be persuaded into peace, though the happy truth should be as plain before us as the King’s highway.”
