Daily Help from Charles H. Spurgeon - May 30th

I've been reading the end of I Chronicles and the Gospel of John this week. In my reading I've seen the wonder of faith in the Israelites as they brought forth their treasures and valuables in dedication to the building of "Solomon's" temple. Then in John 11:28-44 we see the faith of our Lord in knowing that the Father always hears Him. This matter of Lazarus' death, the disciples unbelief, and the grief brought upon by the doubt of Jesus' words prompts our Lord to weep. Ironically, once again, the words of Charles Spurgeon are not far from where the Lord as me in the Scriptures. Amen!

Here's C.H. Spurgeon for May 30th...

Beloved reader, what is thy desperate case? What heavy matter hast thous in hand this evening? Bring it hither. The God of the prophets lives, and lives to help his saints. He will not suffer thee to lack any good thing. Believe thou in the Lord of Hosts! Approach him pleading the name of Jesus; thou too shalt see the finger of God working marvels for his people. According to thy faith be it unto thee. In our hours of bodily pain and mental anguish, we find ourselves as naturally driven to prayer as the wreck is driven upon the shore by the waves.

Faith, then, we choose, rather than doubt, as the mainspring of our life.
