Charles Spurgeon on Psalm 18

"... your gentleness has made me great."
Psalm 18:35c

It is God's making Himself little which is the cause of our being made great. We are so little, that if God should manifest his greatness without condescension, we should be trampled under His feet; but God, who must stoop to view the skies, and bow to see what the angels do, turns His eye yet lower, and looks to the lowly and contrite, and makes them great.

David ascribes all his greatness to the condescending goodness of his Father in heaven. May this sentiment be echoed in our hearts this evening while we cast our crowns at Jesus' feet and cry, "Thy gentleness hath made me great."

How marvelous has been our experience of God's gentleness!
How gentle have been His corrections! How gentle His forbearance!
How gentle his teachings!

Meditate upon this theme, O believer. Let gratitude awakened; let humility be deepened; let love be quickened ere thou fallest asleep tonight.

God Bless,
