Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 8th August

Confidence Not Misplaced

The Lord God will help me. (Isaiah 50:7)

These are in prophecy the words of Messiah in the day of His obedience unto death. He was confident in divine support and trusted in Jehovah.

O my soul, thy sorrows are as the small dust compared with thy Lord’s! Canst thou not believe that the Lord God will help thee? As the representative of sinful men—their substitute and sacrifice—it was needful that the Father should leave Him and cause Him to come under desertion of soul. Even in such a case thy Saviour Jesus still relied upon God, so cannot then you? He died for thee and thus made it impossible that thou shouldst be left alone; wherefore, be of good cheer.

In this day’s labours or trials say, “The Lord God will help me.” Go forth boldly. Set your face like a flint and resolve that no faintness or shamefacedness shall come near you. If God helps, who can hinder? If you are sure of omnipotent aid, what can be too heavy for you? Begin the day joyously, and let no shade of doubt come between thee and the eternal sunshine.
