Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 29th August

Plentiful Refreshment

Their soul shall be like a well-watered garden. (Jeremiah 31:12)

Oh, to have one’s soul under heavenly cultivation; no longer a wilderness but a garden of the Lord! Walled around by grace, planted by instruction, visited by love, weeded by heavenly discipline, and guarded by divine power, one’s favoured soul is prepared to yield fruit unto the Lord.

But a garden may become parched for want of water, and then it starts to wither. How soon would this be the case. were the Lord to leave us! A garden without water soon ceases to be a garden at all: nothing can come to perfection, grow, or even live.

But when irrigation is kept up, the result is charming. Oh, to have one’s soul watered by the Holy Spirit uniformly, every part of the garden having its own stream. Bringing not only its heat, but its refreshment; each plant receiving just what it needs.

Lord, water me today and cause me to yield You a full reward.
