The writings of Charles Spurgeon continue to fan the flame of faith for countless fearful souls even today. I recently read some heart-emboldening words from the pen of Dr. Spurgeon as he commented on Isaiah 41:14. “Do not be afraid – for I Myself will help you – declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”
Today, let us hear the Lord Jesus speak to each one of us: ‘I Myself will help you! It is but a small thing for Me, your God, to help you. Consider what I have done already.
What! not help you? Why, I bought you with My blood. What! not help you? Why, I have died for you! And if I have done the greater – will I not do the lesser? Help you? Before the world began – I chose you. I laid aside My glory and became a man for you. I gave up My life for you! And if I did all this – I will surely help you now. If you had need of a thousand times as much help – I would give it to you.
You require little, compared with what I am ready to give. It is much for you to need – but it is nothing for Me to bestow.
What! not help you? Fear not! If there were an ant at the door of your granary, asking for help – it would not ruin you to give him a handful of your wheat! Just so, you are nothing but a tiny insect at the door of My all-sufficiency!’
‘I Myself will help you!’ O my soul, is not this enough? Bring your empty pitcher here! Surely this well will fill it. Hasten! gather up your needs, and bring them here – your emptiness, your woes, your troubles. Behold, this river of God is full for your supply. What more can you desire? The Eternal God is your helper!
