The Overcomer's Reward - 'Charles Spurgeon' Devotional

Wednesday, May 01, 2013




Hello emoticon S,

Here is yet another great Charles Spurgeon devotional for you. I am adding the great old hymn, 'Onward Christian Soldiers' (with lyrics on screen) today, too.

Let us take heart in the fact that Our God wins this war with sin and want and oneday all our strife will cease. In the meantime, let us persevere and march on, hoping in Christ and keeping our faith intake, to His honor and glory.

Have a great day---I will be off line for a couple of days starting tomorrow,
Bless you, Joanie




The Overcomer's Reward


"To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a New Name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it" (Revelation 2:17).



My heart, be thou stirred up to persevere in the holy war, for the reward of victory is great.

Today we eat of heavenly food which falls about our camps; the food of the wilderness, the food which comes from heaven, the food which never fails the pilgrims to Canaan. But there is reserved for us in Christ Jesus a still higher degree of spiritual life and a food for it which, as yet, is hidden from our experience. In the golden pot which was laid up in the ark there was a portion of manna hidden away, which though kept for ages never grew stale. No one ever saw it; it was hid with the Ark of the Covenant, in the Holy of Holies. Even so, the highest life of the believer is hid with Christ, in God. We shall come to it soon, Being made victorious through the grace of our LORD Jesus, we shall eat of the King's meat and feed upon royal dainties. We shall feed upon Jesus. He is our "hidden manna," as well as the manna of the wilderness. He is all in all to us in our highest, as well as in our lowest, estate. He helps us to fight, gives us the victory, and then is Himself our reward. LORD, help me to overcome.

    Great message Joanie. When we accomplish something that is difficult, we can be assured that God was there to help us through. I love Onward Christian Soldiers hymn. I used to sing it as a child going to the Salvation Army Sunday School. It is still a favorite of mine.
Blessings,
Joanie
