“Care more for a grain of faith than a ton of excitement.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We, the called and faithful and chosen, we will drive away our griefs, and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is not great faith, but true faith, that saves; and the salvation lies not in the faith, but in the Christ in whom faith trusts…It is not the measure of faith, but the sincerity of faith, which is the point to be considered.”

“The life of God within you will make your actions instinct with holiness, and its end shall be everlasting life. Your faith in Christ clearly evinces you to be a new creature, for it kills your old confidences and makes you build upon a new foundation: your love for Christ also shows your newness, for it has killed your old desires, and captured your heart only for Jesus: and your hope, which is also a gift from the blessed Spirit, is set upon new things altogether, while your old hopes are things of which you are now ashamed.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is as much the gift of God as is the Saviour upon whom that faith relies.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Arise, believer, and behold the Lord Jesus yoking the whole of his divine Godhead to the chariot of salvation! How vast his grace, how firm his faithfulness, how unswerving his immutability, how infinite his power, how limitless his knowledge!” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“You would never have possessed the precious faith which now supports you if the trial of your faith had not been like unto fire. You are a tree that never would have rooted so well if the wind had not rocked you to and fro, and made you take firm hold upon the precious truths of the covenant grace.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The Christian understands the word “good” in a different way. By “good” he understands spiritual good.  “Ah!” he says, “I do not call gold good, but I call faith good! I do not think it is always for my good to increase in wealth, but I know it is good to grow in grace. I do not know that it is for my good that I should be respected and be accepted by society, but I know that it is for my good that I should walk humbly with my God.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be, and that He will do what He has promised to do, and then to expect this of Him.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“If God declares that all is well, ten thousand devils may declare it to be ill, but we laugh them all to scorn. Blessed be God for a faith which enables us to believe God when the creatures contradict Him.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We will this year gather celestial fruits on earthly ground, where faith and hope have made the desert like the garden of the Lord.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“No stars gleam as brightly as those which glisten in the polar sky. No water tastes so sweet as that which springs amid the desert sand. And no faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs through adversity. Tested faith brings experience. You would never have believed your own weakness had you not needed to pass through trials. And you would never have known God’s strength had His strength not been needed to carry you through.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“A little faith will bring your soul to heaven; a great faith will bring heaven to your soul.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Repentance grows as faith grows. Do not make any mistake about it; repentance is not a thing of days and weeks, a temporary penance to be got over as fast as possible! No; it is the grace of a lifetime, like faith itself. God’s little children repent, and so do the young men and the fathers. Repentance is the inseparable companion of faith.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith never makes herself her own plea, she rests all her argument upon the blood of Christ.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Worldly ease is a great foe to faith; it loosens the joints of holy valour, and snaps the sinews of sacred courage. The balloon never rises until the cords are cut; affliction doth this sharp service for believing souls.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Morning & Evening NIV: A Devotional Classic for Daily Encouragement By Charles Spurgeon


Charles Spurgeon Morning & Evening NIV- A Devotional Classic for Daily Encouragement

“If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing when it comes. The Lord’s people have always been a waiting people.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the windows which hope has opened.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Never make a Christ out of your faith, nor think of as if it were the independent source of your salvation. Our life is found in “looking unto Jesus,” not in looking to our own faith. By faith all things become possible to us; yet the power is not in the faith, but in the God upon whom faith relies.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is trusting, trusting wholly upon the person, work, merit, and power of the Son of God. Some think this trusting is a romantic business, but indeed it is the simplest thing that can possibly be.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If thou wouldest enjoy the eminent grace of the full assurance of  faith, under the blessed Spirit’s influence, and assistance, do what  the Scripture tells thee, “Give diligence.” Take care that thy faith is  of the right kind–that it is not a mere belief of doctrine, but a  simple faith, depending on Christ, and on Christ alone.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith, again, is doubless selected because it gives all the glory to God. It is of faith that it might be of grace, and it is of grace that there might be no boasting, for God cannot endure pride. “The proud he knoweth afar off.” Psalm 138:6 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“In all works of faith we may count upon Jesus’ fellowship.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We sometimes say, “Only believe;” but believing is just the hardest thing in the world when sin lies heavy on your shoulders. We say, “Sinner, only trust in Christ.” Ah. you do not know what a great “only” that is. It is a work so great, that no man can do it unaided by God; for faith is the gift of God, and he gives it only to his children.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Strong faith enables the servants of God to look with calm contempt upon their most haughty foes. We know that our enemies are attempting impossibilities.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“When you see no present advantage, walk by faith and not by sight. Do God the honor to trust Him when it comes to matters of loss for the sake of principle.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“No dependence can be placed upon our natural qualities, or our spiritual attainments; but God abideth faithful. He is faithful in His love; He knows no variableness, neither shadow of turning. He is faithful to His purpose; He doth not begin a work and then leave it undone. He is faithful to His relationships; as a Father He will not renounce His children, as a friend He will not deny His people, as a Creator He will not forsake the work of His own hands.”

 ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is the work of God’s grace in us. No man can say that Jesus is the Christ but by the Holy Ghost.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Remember, therefore, it is not thy hold of Christ that saves thee–it is Christ; it is not thy joy in Christ that saves thee–it is Christ; it is not even faith in Christ, though that be the instrument–it is Christ’s blood and merits; therefore, look not so much to thy hand with which thou art grasping Christ, as to Christ; look not to thy hope, but to Jesus, the source of thy hope; look not to thy faith, but to Jesus, the author and finisher of thy faith.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We need winds and tempests to exercise our faith, to tear off the rotten branches of self-reliance, and to root us more firmly in Christ.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We accept the Lord Jesus by faith, and He teaches us obedience, creating it in us. The more faith in Him that we have, the more obedience to Him we will manifest.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is not a blind thing; for faith begins with knowledge. It is not a speculative thing; for faith believes facts of which it is sure. It is not an unpractical, dreamy thing; for faith trusts, and stakes its destiny upon the truth of revelation.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If people loved good works as much as they pretend to, they would love the faith which produces them.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The eclipse of your faith, the darkness of your mind, the fainting of your hope, all these things are but parts of God’s method of making you ripe for the great inheritance upon which you shall soon enter. These trials are for the testing and strengthening of your faith–they are waves that wash you further upon the rock–they are winds which waft your ship the more swiftly towards the desired haven.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is the road, but communion with Jesus is the well from which the pilgrim drinks.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“God has set apart His people from before the foundation of the world to be His chosen and peculiar inheritance. We are sanctified in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit when he subdues our corruptions, imparts to us grace, and leads us onward in the divine walk and life of faith. Christian men are not to be used for anything but God. They are a set-apart people; they are vessels of mercy, they are not for the devil’s use, not for their own use, not for the world’s use, but for their Master’s use. He has made them on purpose to be used entirely, solely and wholly for Him. O Christian people, be holy, for Christ is holy. Do not pollute that holy Name wherewith you are named. Let your family life, your personal life, your business life, be as holy as Christ your Lord would have it to be. Shall saints be shams when sinners are so real?” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“My hope lives not because I am not a sinner, but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; my trust is not that I am holy, but that being unholy, he is my righteousness. My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what he has done, and in what he is now doing for me.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“God grant, if we must have two eyes, that they may be both clear ones, one the eye of faith wholly fixed on Christ, the other the eye of obedience equally and wholly fixed on the same objective!” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“There is no place like Calvary for creating confidence. The air of that sacred hill brings health to trembling faith.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith, in the Scripture, is spoken of under the emblem of all the senses. It is sight: “Look unto me and be ye saved.” It is hearing: “Hear, and your soul shall live.” Faith is smelling: “All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia”; “thy name is as ointment poured forth.” Faith is spiritual touch.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I know by a full assurance that I am justified by faith which is in Christ Jesus, and treated as if I had been perfectly just, and made an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ; and yet by nature I must take my place among the most sinful.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Grace is the first and last moving cause of salvation; and faith, essential as it is, is only an important part of the machinery which grace employs. We are saved ‘through faith,’ but salvation is ‘by grace’.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Many talk of what they can do and what they cannot do, and I fear they miss the vital point. Faith is leaving off the can-ing and cannot-ing, and leaving it all to Christ, for he can do all things, though you can do nothing.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We may explain faith till nobody understands it.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We need winds and tempests to exercise our faith, to tear off the rotten bough of self-dependence, and to root us more firmly in Christ. The day of evil reveals to us the value of our glorious hope.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The delight which the mariner feels, when, after having been tossed about for many a day, he steps again upon the solid shore, is the satisfaction of a Christian when amidst all the changes of this troublous life, he rests the foot of his faith upon this truth—‘I am the Lord, I change not.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is as precious to die by as it is to live by.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Paul saith, ‘Not of works, lest any man should boast.’ Now, faith excludes all boasting. The hand which receives charity does not say, ‘I am to be thanked for accepting the gift’; that would be absurd. When the hand conveys bread to the mouth it does not say to the body, ‘Thank me; for I feed you.’ It is a very simple thing that the hand does though a very necessary thing; and it never arrogates glory to itself for what it does. So God has selected faith to receive the unspeakable gift of His grace, because it cannot take to itself any credit, but must adore the gracious God who is the giver of all good.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh, blessed trust! To trust Him . . . whose power will never be exhausted, whose love will never wane, whose kindness will never change, whose faithfulness will never fail, whose wisdom will never be confounded, and whose perfect goodness can never know a diminution!” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Good word sink into your soul. It may be that the hour is come in which you shall enter upon that new life which is the beginning of heaven. Faith cometh by hearing, and reading is a sort of hearing: faith may come to you while you are reading this book. Why not? O blessed Spirit” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith is the work of God’s grace in us.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon



“God is very good to those who trust in him, and often surprises them with unlooked for blessings. Little do we know what may happen to us to-morrow, but this sweet fact may cheer us, that no good thing shall be withheld. Chance is banished from the faith of Christians, for they see the hand of God in everything.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“To a great extent in spiritual things we get what we expect of the Lord. Faith alone can bring us to see Jesus.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“There is joy in hell when a saint grows idle! There is gladness among devils when we cease to pray, when we become slack in faith and feeble in communion with God.”

 ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Ought we not to look upon our own history as being at least as full of God, as full of His goodness and of His truth, as much a proof of His faithfulness and veracity, as the lives of any of the saints who have gone before? We do our Lord an injustice when we suppose that He wrought all His mighty acts, and showed Himself strong for those in the early time, but doth not perform wonders or lay bare His arm for the saints who are now upon the earth.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is not great faith but true faith that saves. And the salvation lies not in the faith but in the Christ in whom faith trusts.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If you believed, if you did but hear one promise that would be enough; if you only heard one good thing from the pulpit, here would be food for your soul, for it is not the quantity we hear, but the quantity we believe, that does us good-it is that which we receive into our hearts with true and lively faith, that is our profit.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Repentance is as much a mark of a Christian, as faith is. A very little sin, as the world calls it, is a very great sin to a true Christian.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Cast the burden of the present, along with the sin of the past and the fear of the future, upon the Lord, who forsaketh not His saints. Live by the day–ay, by the hour. Put no trust in frames and feelings. Care more for a grain of faith than a ton of excitement. Trust in God alone, and lean not on the needs of human help.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith exists in different persons in various degrees, according to the amount of their knowledge or growth in grace.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“He who has two grounds of trust is lost! He who relies upon two
salvations, and cannot say of Christ, “He is all my salvation and all my desire,” that man is not only in danger of being
lost, but he is already condemned; because, in fact, he believes not on the Son of God! He is not alive to God at all, but rests partly on the Cross, and then in some measure on something else.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“It is not a brave thing to trust God. To true believers, it is a sweet necessity.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“How did you come to be a Christian? I sought the Lord. But how did you come to seek the Lord? The truth flashed across my mind in a moment—I should not have sought Him unless there had been some previous influence in my mind to make me seek Him. I prayed, thought I, but then I asked myself, How came I to pray? I was induced to pray by reading the Scriptures. How came I to read the Scriptures? I did read them, but what led me to do so? Then, in a moment, I saw that God was at the bottom of it all, and that He was the Author of my faith.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Be wise and attend to obeying. Let Christ manage the providing.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Moses grew weary, and then his friends assisted him. When at any time your prayer flags, let faith support one hand, and let holy hope uplift the other, and prayer seating itself upon the stone of Israel, the rock of our salvation, will persevere and prevail.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Lord, in this sweet eventide walk with me in the garden, and teach me the wisdom of faith.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We are more than conquerors through him that loved us. We shall cast down the powers of darkness which are in the world, by our faith, and zeal, and holiness; we shall win sinners to Jesus, we shall overturn false systems, we shall convert nations, for God is with us, and none shall stand before us.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Men have laboured to divide the faithful  from their Master, but their attempts have been fruitless in every age.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Little-Faith is just as certain to get to heaven as Great-Faith. When Jesus Christ counts up his Jewels at the last day, he will have little pearls as well as great ones. A diamond is precious no matter how small it is, because it is a diamond. And faith, no matter how small it is, if it is true faith, has a place in Christ’s crown. Little-Faith is always certain of heaven, because the name of Little-Faith is written in the book of eternal life. Little Faith was chosen by God before the creation of the world. Little-Faith was bought with the blood of Christ and he cost just as much as Great-Faith.” 

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
