Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 1st October

A Covenant He Remembers

He has given food to those who fear him; he will ever be mindful of his covenant. (Psalm 111:5)

Those who fear God need not fear or want. Through all these long years the Lord has always found meat for his children, whether they have been in the wilderness or by the brook Cherith. So we doubt not that he will continue to feed us till we want no more.

As to the higher and greater blessings of the covenant of grace, he will never cease to supply them as our case demands. He is mindful that he made the covenant, and he is mindful to love us, keep us, and comfort us.

Even when we are unmindful of God, he is graciously mindful of us. He cannot forget his Son who is the surety of the covenant, or his Holy Spirit who actively carries out the covenant, or his own honour, which is bound up with the covenant. Hence the foundation of God stands sure, and no believer shall lose his divine inheritance.
