Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 24th October

Godly Stability

And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall: and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 15:20)

Stability in the fear and faith of God will make a man like a wall of brass, which no one can batter down or break.

Against uncompromising men of truth this age of shams will fight tooth and nail. Nothing seems to offend Satan and his seed like decision. They attack holy firmness even as the Assyrians besieged fenced cities. The joy is that they cannot prevail against those whom God has made strong in His strength. Carried about with every wind of doctrine, others only need to be blown upon and away they go; but those who love the doctrines of grace, stand like rocks in the midst of raging seas.

The LORD will save and deliver faithful souls from all the assaults of the adversary. We dare not budge an inch; for the Lord Himself holds us in our place, and there we will abide forever.
