Spurgeon’s devotional writings today are about faith and trust in the LORD. Spurgeon calls us to place our trust in Him for all things in our lives. As believers we know that we must place our trust in Him for our salvation. But we must learn to put our trust in Him for all things.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. – Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
To please God in any area of our life, it must be based solidly in our faith in Him. Here are two additional quotes from Spurgeon that I believe are insightful relating to faith. They are both from his sermon entitled, Trust (Volume 33, Sermon 1978).
Trust in Christ brings to God greater glory than anything else we can produce.
If Christ were standing on this platform, and you saw His pierced hands and the wound in His side, you would be ready to fall down and worship Him. You can worship Him better still by trusting Him in His absence.
Let us take heed to Spurgeon’s exhortations in today’s readings to place our full faith and trust in the LORD.
