Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 15th September

The Safest Shelter
 
A man shall be as an hiding-place from the wind and a cover from the tempest. (Isaiah 32:2)

Who could this man be, but the Son of Man? What a hiding place He has been to His people! He bears the full force of the wind Himself, and so He shelters those who hide themselves in Him. Why do we stand in the wind when we may so readily and so surely get out of it by hiding behind our Lord? Let us this day run to Him and be at peace.

Often the common wind of trouble rises in its force and becomes a tempest, sweeping everything before it. Things which looked firm and stable, rock in the blast. Our Lord Jesus, the glorious man, is a cover which is never blown down. In Him we mark the tempest sweeping by, but we ourselves rest in delightful serenity.

This day let us just stow ourselves away in our hiding place and sit and sing under the protection of our Cover. How we love Thee, Jesus! You are to us a shelter in the storm.
