Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 10th September

Coming In, Going Out

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. (Deuteronomy 28:6)

If I keep the commands of my Lord, I may appropriate this promise without question.

This day I will come into my house without fear of evil tidings, and I will come in to my closet expecting to hear good news from my Lord. I will not be afraid to come in unto myself by self-examination, nor to come in to my affairs by a diligent inspection of my business. Oh, for the blessing of the Lord Jesus, who has promised to abide with me.

I must also go out. Timidity makes me wish that I could stay within doors and never go into the sinful world. But I must go out in my calling; I must go out that I may be helpful to my brethren and useful to the ungodly. I must be a defender of the faith and an assailant of evil. Oh, for a blessing upon my going out this day!

Lord, let me go where you lead, on your errands, under your command, and in the power of your Spirit.
