“His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches over me.”
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matt. 10:29-31)
Spurgeon: To get the nourishment out of a text, turn it over and over in your mind,meditate upon it, pull it to pieces word by word! Scripture meditation is the strong meat on which holy men are nourished. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up into your very soul, until it saturates your heart! The more you read the Bible, and the more you meditate on it–the more you will be astonished with it!
This is why I love the old classics, like C.H. Spurgeon here, who spoke and wrote unfettered. It is pithy, so succinct, and goes to the depths of the soul and straight into the fathomless profundities of the eternal truth of Forever. Good thing to know and consult when the stygian bottomless pit is trying to suck the life from your heart and soul. -g.w.
