"A promise from God may very instructively be compared to a check payable to order," wrote the renowned British pastor Charles H. Spurgeon. "It is given to the believer with the view of bestowing upon him some good thing. It is not meant that he should read it over comfortably, and then have done with it. No, he is to treat the promise as a reality, as a man treats a check ...more

I have spent the last year using this daily reading from Spurgeon for encouragement and guidance as I use my Bible notes in the morning.For that extra shot of Biblical injection before facing the big wide world

This is a real inspiration to read and reflect on throughout the day. I purchased this on my Kindle and it is so much more accessible than lugging around a big book, that I was able to re-read this throughout the day wherever I was.

This preacher really knew how to deliver a message with hi

Spurgeon is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I am also reading a sermon of his each day and appreciate his depth and bold challenges to his congregations. Spurgeons writing from nineteenth century
England remind me that Christ's promises & the Gospel are never changing and that is so beautiful and encouraging.

Charles Spurgeon still shines even after all these years -- his encouragement in the faith and his knowledge of Gods love to us in Christ should be part of every believer's reading menu.

When I read this book in my 20's, I would have given it five stars. It did definitely teach me to pray and to plead the promises of God. And most of the time it was encouraging and firmly rooted in sound theological reasoning based on the Bible. On the other hand, there are promises given in Scripture that cannot be appropriated for my particular situation (or any person's particular situation). Thinking that every promise in Scripture is a blank check is the anagogical fallacy. The reader needs ...more

I have used this in my personal devotions and quiet time repeatedly. I cannot tell you how God has ministered to me in these short little devotionals written by Spurgeon.
I whole heartedly recommend this book to any christian looking for a daily reading book. Spurgeon's writing is kind and gentle echoing the character of his Saviour. Each reading is positive and encouraging; reaffirming the very deep love Jesus has for his people. I started reading this book just after losing my job and found in it all promises I needed to stand on. Spurgeon's deep understanding of the Scripture's gives his writing depth and so provides food for the soul and revives the flagging ...more

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England, and became a Baptist minister. In fact, he was probably Britain’s best-known preacher of the nineteenth century, serving with the New Park Street Baptist Chapel in Southwark, London, which he built into the Metropolitan Tabernacle. In addition to his public speaking, Spurgeon was involved in several charitable organizations, including an orphanage in Stockwell, and had an extensive influence through his writings.

This has to be one of my favorite devotional books. I used it 3 years in a row during a dark period in my life. Each day brought me to a promise of God's and He will keep that promise in his perfect time, but I must endorse that promise and take it to the bank if Faith! A great encouragement. I have given copies of thus little book to many seeking to give them encouragement.

Spurgeon's mastery of the Bible and his ability to cut to the heart of scripture passages comes shining through in this short, but invaluable devotional.

very insightful daily devotions based on a scripture but some really good thoughts and prayer ideas come out of it

Though nothing seems quite able to top Morning by Morning, this devotional is a good, worthwhile book for beginning the day. Spurgeon is quite solid, mixing the encouragement of the promises of God with pricks for the conscience - spurring readers on to love and good works.
One of the best devotionals I've ever read. Each day has a one page devotion based on a Bible promise. Outside of just a few Victorian words or references (easily defined/explained using Google, etc.), the topics are so applicable to today, you would never know it was written in the 1880's. Highly recommended.

This might be my favorite devotional book. (The size certainly helps that--it fits in my purse like a checkbook!) Charles Spurgeon's clear, simple writings always seem to hit me where I need it.

This is an oldie but goodie it's short for those pressed for time yet plenty of depth to glean from Gods word and draw closer to Him, Very applicable to modern world !

2010 devotional -- the daily readings were a bit shorter than I'd like but it dovetailed nicely with Streams in the Dessert.

Good way to get into Spurgeon's heart. Called the 'prince of preachers' this British leader has influenced countless lives.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey M ...more
