    Spurgeon Speaks

    I will help thee, saith the Lord (Isa 41:14)

    This morning let us hear the Lord Jesus speak to each one of us: "I will help
    thee." "It is but a small thing for me, thy God, to help thee. Consider what I
    have done already. What! not help thee? Why, I bought thee with my blood. What!
    not help thee? I have died for thee; and if I have done the greater, will I not
    do the less? Help thee! It is the least thing I will ever do for thee; I have
    done more, and will do more. Before the world began I chose thee. I made the
    covenant for thee. I laid aside my glory and became a man for thee; I gave up
    my life for thee; and if I did all this, I will surely help thee now. In
    helping thee, I am giving thee what I have bought for thee already. If thou
    hadst need of a thousand times as much help, I would give it thee; thou
    requirest little compared with what I am ready to give. ‘Tis much for thee to
    need, but it is nothing for me to bestow. ‘Help thee?’ Fear not! If there
    were an ant at the door of thy granary asking for help, it would not ruin thee
    to give him a handful of thy wheat; and thou art nothing but a tiny insect at
    the door of my all sufficiency. ‘I will help thee.’"

    O my soul, is not this enough? Dost thou need more strength than the omnipotence
    of the United Trinity? Dost thou want more wisdom than exists in the Father,
    more love than displays itself in the Son, or more power than is manifest in
    the influences of the Spirit? Bring hither thine empty pitcher! Surely this
    well will fill it. Haste, gather up thy wants, and bring them here—thine
    emptiness, thy woes, thy needs. Behold, this river of God is full for thy
    supply; what canst thou desire beside? Go forth, my soul, in this thy might.
    The Eternal God is thine helper!

    Fear not, I am with thee, O, be not dismay’d!

    I, I am thy God, and will still give thee aid.

    Just wanted to say Thank You for that post my wife and I are going through some hard times now and your post was very comforting to us.

    Lately in all my troubles I seem to forget God's love for us and what it cost him to redeem us.

    Thank you.

    Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear. Is.65:24 ESV

    The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying. John Flavel.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
