Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 23rd October

Harvest of Light and Gladness

Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. (Psalm 97:11)

Righteousness is often costly to the man who keeps to it at all hazards, but in the end it will return an infinite profit. A holy life is like sowing seed: much is going out, and apparently it is buried in the soil, never to be gathered up again. Yet light is “sown,” it lies latent: none can see it; but it is sown. We are quite sure that it must one day manifest itself.

The Lord has set a harvest for the sowers of light, and they shall reap it. Then shall come their gladness. Sheaves of joy for seeds of light. Their heart was upright before the Lord, though men gave them no credit for it. They had to wait, but the light was sown for them, and gladness was being prepared on their behalf by the Lord of the harvest.

Take courage! We need not be in a hurry. Soon shall our souls possess light and gladness.
