In these turbulent times we need a strong anchor. This one-year devotional invites you to explore the anchoring wisdom of the Psalms, lovingly amplified through the insights of a spiritual giant, Charles Spurgeon. Written over a span of twenty years, his multi-volume commentary, The Treasury of David, is the basis for these daily meditations. Far from shallow sentimentalism, Spurgeon leads us into a greater understanding of the important biblical truths of the Christian faith. He also draws us deeper into the psalmists’ interior lives. Spurgeon’s own physical and emotional suffering heightened his awareness of the psalmists’ personal struggles, prayers, and ultimate dependence on the Father. Never pulling us to despair, Spurgeon rather lifts our eyes to see how God works in our world and through his people. Through these reflections on the Psalms, Spurgeon invites us into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, an unswerving commitment to the church, an increasing love for a hurting world, and living for God’s glory. Start your days with this devotional guide and you will be oft-reminded that we may have weeping in the night, but joy comes in the morning.
“This daily devotional reaches back to glean from a rich source that was written in an increasingly impoverished age. Charles Spurgeon challenged the skeptical modernist impulse of his day to provide an abundant feast of biblical doctrine. . . . Now in our needy day, McKinley has harvested for us some of the most pungent ideas embedded within that work and takes us on a soul-feast through the Psalms and Spurgeon at the same time. These are short and manageable for the beginning or ending of a day; but their economy of language and syntax does not mean they lack spiritual challenge combined with sustenance. Every sentence has a definite purpose to lead us to consider the burden of a word or phrase in the biblical text.”
