Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 31st October

Immortal Until the Lord’s Work is Done

I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. (Psalm 118:17)

Is my case like that of David? Are there multitudes against me and few on my side? Does unbelief bid me lie down and die in despair – a defeated man? Do my enemies begin to dig my grave?

What then? Shall I yield to the whisper of fear, and give up the battle, and with it give up all hope? Far from it. There is life in me yet, “I shall not die.” Vigor will return and remove my weakness, “I shall live.” The Lord lives, and I shall live also.

I shall speak of the present trouble as another instance of the wonder-working faithfulness and love of the Lord my God. Those who would gladly measure me for my coffin had better wait a bit, for “the Lord has chastened me sore, but he has not given me over unto death.” Glory be to His name forever! I am immortal till my work is done. Till the Lord wills it, no vault can close upon me.
