I love Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotionals. This morning Mr. Spurgeon was writing on Jeremiah 17:17.
“Be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil.“
Mr. Spurgeon used the King James version, so I will too. He focused on the last part of the verse.
It seems now all the days are evil. I have been quarantined for 45 days. It’s no good listening to the news, everyone is saying something different. Who can you believe? The media has proven themselves liars. Politicians prove themselves liars everyday. Doctors are struggling to understand. And the American people are getting tired of it all.
The days are evil indeed. But, can we joyfully lie down in green pastures and walk besides the still waters and not with the same peace walk in the desert and under the storm clouds?
Peter said, God’s divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Paul agreed when He said all things are ours (Romans 8:32; 1 Corinthians 3:21-22).
Based on all that, my prayer this morning.
Let me avail myself of your force and energy through the Spirit for my journey toward Home. Whatever my circumstances may I run with You and not grow weary; walk with You and not faint. Amen, Jesus!
