“The ill favoured and lean fleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine.” ~ Genesis 41:4 ~ Pharaoh’s dream has too often been my waking experience.

“Our heart shall rejoice in Him.” ~ Psalm 33:21 ~ Blessed is the fact that Christians can rejoice even in the deepest distress; although trouble may surround them, they still sing; and, like many birds, they sing best in their cages.

“In summer and in winter shall it be.” ~ Zechariah 14:8~ The streams of living water which flow from Jerusalem are not dried up by the parching heats of sultry midsummer any more than they were frozen by the cold winds of blustering winter.

“Them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:14 ~ Let us not imagine that the soul sleeps in insensibility. “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise,” is the whisper of Christ to every dying saint.

Morning’s With Charles Spurgeon ~ 06.28.22

“Looking unto Jesus.” ~ Hebrews 12:2 ~ It is ever the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan’s work is just the opposite of this, for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ.

“Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.” ~ 1 Corinthians 7:20 ~ Some persons have the foolish notion that the only way in which they can live for God is by becoming ministers, missionaries, or Bible women.

Morning’s With Charles Spurgeon ~ 06.27.22

“Only ye shall not go very far away.” ~ Exodus 8:28 ~ This is a crafty word from the lip of the arch-tyrant Pharaoh.

Evening’s With Charles Spurgeon ~ 06.26.22

“Having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” ~ 2 Peter 1:4 ~ Vanish for ever all thought of indulging the flesh if you would live in the power of your risen Lord.

“Art thou become like unto us?” ~ Isaiah 14:10 ~ What must be the apostate professor’s doom when his naked soul appears before God?

“The dove found no rest for the sole of her foot.” ~ Genesis 8:9 ~ Reader, can you find rest apart from the ark, Christ Jesus? Then be assured that your religion is vain.

“Get thee up into the high mountain.” ~ Isaiah 40:9 ~ Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains.

“Waiting for the adoption.” ~ Romans 8:23 ~ Even in this world saints are God’s children, but men cannot discover them to be so, except by certain moral characteristics.

“Ephraim is a cake not turned.” ~ Hosea 7:8 ~ A cake not turned is uncooked on one side; and so Ephraim was, in many respects, untouched by divine grace: though there was some partial obedience, there was very much rebellion left.

“The foundation of God standeth sure.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:19 ~ The foundation upon which our faith rests is this, that “God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them.” The great fact on which genuine faith relies is, that “the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us,” and that “Christ also hath… (more…)

“Thou art fairer than the children of men.” ~ Psalm 45:2 ~ The entire person of Jesus is but as one gem, and His life is all along but one impression of the seal.

“For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.” ~ Amos 9:9 ~ Every sifting comes by divine command and permission.

“I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse.” ~ Song of Solomon 5:1 ~ The heart of the believer is Christ’s garden. He bought it with His precious blood, and He enters it and claims it as His own. A garden implies separation. It is not the open common; it is not a wilderness; it is walled around,… (more…)

“Help, Lord.” ~ Psalm 12:1 ~ The prayer itself is remarkable, for it is short, but seasonable, sententious, and suggestive. David mourned the fewness of faithful men, and therefore lifted up his heart in supplication—when the creature failed, he flew to the Creator. He evidently felt his own weakness, or he would not have cried for help; but at the… (more…)

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” ~ Psalm 27:1 ~ The Lord is my light and my salvation.” Here is personal interest, “my light,” “my salvation”; the soul is assured of it, and therefore declares it boldly.
