“His name is faithfulness” by Charles Spurgeon

‘Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.’ – Ps 91:14

“Does the Lord say this to me? Yes, if I have known His name. Blessed be the Lord, I am no stranger to Him.

I have tried Him, proved Him, and known Him, and therefore do I trust Him.

I know His name as a sin-hating God, for by His Spirit’s convincing power I have been taught that He will never wink at evil.

But I also know Him as the sin-pardoning God in Christ Jesus, for He has forgiven me all trespasses.

His name is faithfulness, and I know it, for He has never forsaken me though my troubles have multiplied upon me.

This knowledge is a gift of grace, and the Lord makes it to be the reason why He grants another grace-gift, namely, setting on high.

This is grace upon grace. Observe that if we climb on high, the position may be dangerous; but if the Lord sets us there it is safe.

He may raise us to great usefulness, to eminent experience, to success in service, to leadership among workers, to a father’s place among the little ones.

If He does not do this, He may set us on high by near fellowship, clear insight, holy triumph, and gracious anticipation of eternal glory.

When God sets us on high, Satan himself cannot pull us down. Oh, that this may be our case all through this day!”

–Charles Spurgeon, “May 15,” in Chequebook of the Bank of Faith.
