The babe of Bethlehem, the man who once hung dead and forsaken upon the cross, is now the Lord of glory!

Daily Help by Spurgeon


"Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?"

He looses the bands of Orion, and none but he. What a blessing it is that he can do it! O that he would perform the wonder tonight! Lord, end my winter, and let my spring begin. I cannot, with all my longings, raise my soul

 

out of her death and dullness, but all things are possible with you. I need celestial influences, the clear shinings of your love, the beams of your grace, the light of your countenance; these are the Pleiades to me. I suffer much from sin and temptation; these are my wintry signs, my terrible Orion. Lord, work wonders in me, and for me. Amen.

The Spurgeon Birthday Book

August 7


To perish in mid ocean seems not so hard a lot as to die with the white cliffs of Albion just before you: to die with the gospel ringing in our ears is still more sad. Never reckon the ship safe until it floats in the haven; never reckon a soul saved

 

until it is actually "in Christ." The "almost persuaded" are often the last to be fully persuaded.
