CH Spurgeon_________December 22

December 22-Morning {Daily Reading: #2Jo 1:1-Jude 1:25} {Quick Study: #3Jo 1-14}

“I will strengthen thee.” {#Isa 41:10}

God has a strong reserve with which to discharge this

engagement; for he is able to do all things. Believer, till thou

canst drain dry the ocean of omnipotence, till thou canst break

into pieces the towering mountains of almighty strength, thou

never needest to fear. Think not that the strength of man shall

ever be able to overcome the power of God. Whilst the earth’s

huge pillars stand, thou hast enough reason to abide firm in thy

faith. The same God who directs the earth in its orbit, who

feeds the burning furnace of the sun, and trims the lamps of

heaven, has promised to supply thee with daily strength. While

he is able to uphold the universe, dream not that he will prove

unable to fulfil his own promises. Remember what he did in the

days of old, in the former generations. Remember how he spake

and it was done; how he commanded, and it stood fast. Shall he

that created the world grow weary? He hangeth the world upon

nothing; shall he who doth this be unable to support his

children? Shall he be unfaithful to his word for want of power?

Who is it that restrains the tempest? Doth not he ride upon the

wings of the wind, and make the clouds his chariots, and hold

the ocean in the hollow of his hand? How can he fail thee? When

he has put such a faithful promise as this on record, wilt thou

for a moment indulge the thought that he has outpromised

himself, and gone beyond his power to fulfil? Ah, no! Thou canst

doubt no longer.

O thou who art my God and my strength, I can believe that

this promise shall be fulfilled, for the boundless reservoir of

thy grace can never be exhausted, and the overflowing storehouse

of thy strength can never be emptied by thy friends or rifled by

thine enemies.

Now let the feeble all be strong,

And make Jehovah’s arm their song.
