Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 9th November

Necessary Knowledge

Thus shall they know that I, the LORD their God, am with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, says the LORD God. (Ezekiel 34:30)

It is one thing to hope that God is with us and another thing to know that He is so. Faith saves us, but assurance satisfies us. We take God to be our God when we believe in Him; but we get the joy of Him when we know that He is ours and that we are His.

It is when we enjoy covenant blessings and see our Lord Jesus raised up for us as a plant of renown that we come to a clear knowledge of the favour of God toward us. Not by law, but by grace do we learn that we are the Lord’s people. Let us look to the Lord alone. As we see Jesus we shall see our salvation.

Lord, send us such a flood-tide of Thy love that we shall be washed beyond the mire of doubt and fear.
