Spurgeon Module

In this Joomla! Spurgeon module, the developer attempts to combine two of Spurgeon's masterworks, namely Faith Checkbook and the Morning & Evening daily readings. According to the hour that the user accesses the website, the appropriate article will be displayed for his reading pleasure. The article from Faith Checkbook is served as a mid-day devotion, meeting the needs of the reader as he hungers for more in the time between morning and evening.

Spurgeon's Faith Checkbook

For the mid-day devotion of August 13th

Before and During the Call

It shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24)

uick work this! The Lord hears us before we call and often answers us in the same speedy manner. Foreseeing our needs and our prayers, He so arranges providence that before the need actually arises He has supplied it, before the trial assails us He has armed us against it. This is the promptitude of omniscience, and we have often seen it exercised. Before we dreamed of the affliction which was coming, the strong consolation which was to sustain us under it had arrived. What a prayer-answering God we have!

The second clause suggests the telephone. Though God be in heaven and we upon earth, yet He makes our word, like His own word, to travel very swiftly, When we pray aright we speak into the ear of God. Our gracious Mediator presents our petitions at once, and the great Father hears them and smiles upon them. Grand praying this! Who would not be much in prayer when he knows that he has the ear of the King of kings? This day I will pray in faith, not only believing that I shall be heard, but that I am heard; not only that I shall be answered, but that I have the answer already. Holy Spirit, help me in this!
