Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 30th November

God Is in the Front Line

The LORD is the one that goes before you. He will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Here is a text which should help us to buckle on our harness. If the LORD Himself goes before us, it must be safe to follow. Come, let us make a prompt advance! Why do we hesitate to pass on to victory?

Nor is the Lord before us only; He is with us – above, beneath, around, within.

Being before us and with us, He will never withdraw His help. He cannot fail in Himself, and He will not fail toward us. He will continue to help us according to our need, even to the end. As He cannot fail us, so He will not forsake us. He will always be both able and willing to grant us strength.

Let us not fear nor be dismayed; for the Lord of hosts will go down to the battle with us, will bear the brunt of the fight, and give us the victory.
