As the day begins, it is fitting to open our eyes and hearts to our Creator. Morning devotions anchor the soul so that it is less likely to stumble on the day's journey.
Spurgeon said that to rush from bed to business without first talking with God is as foolish as forgetting to bathe or dress or as unwise as dashing into battle without arms or armor. A day of grace begins with time spent alone with God.
I chanced upon this daily devotional in a local bookshop. I didn't know it was that good. I just bought it because I needed something extra for the morning before going off to work. As I began going through it, I realized how inspiring, motivating and crystal clear Spurgeon was able to explain some of the things about God. Along the way, it gave me many fresh revelations; things that I accepted previously as a Christian but never really understood why. As mentioned, many of the devotionals were inspiring and motivating. I really felt that God was speaking to me so lovingly through Spurgeon's devotionals. I'm not the only one who felt this way. Many of my friends and colleagues whom I shared the devotionals with felt the same way. Spurgeon's devotionals brought them so much closer to God and made some of them so much more passionate about God. This is definitely the first-choice daily devotional to go through first thing after we wake up every morning.
