Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 6th December

Through, Not Engulfed

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shalt not be burned; nor shall the flame scorch you. (Isaiah 43:2)

Bridge there is none: we must go through the waters and feel the rush of the rivers. Tried we must be, but triumphant we shall be; for the LORD Himself, who is mightier than many waters, shall be with us. The Lord will surely be with us in difficulties and dangers. The sorrows of life may rise to an extraordinary height, but the Lord is equal to every occasion.

The enemies of God can put in our way dangers, but we shall walk through the fires. God being with us, we shall not be burned; nay, not even the smell of smoke shall remain upon us.

Oh, the wonderful security of the heaven-born and heaven-bound pilgrim! Floods cannot drown him, nor fires burn him. Your presence, O Lord, is the protection of your saints from the varied perils of the road. In faith I commit myself unto you, and my spirit enters into rest.
