“Get there up into the high mountain”

Morning and Evening Daily Devotional by C.H. Spurgeon June, 25 (Morning) Devotion “Get thee up into the high mountain.” Isaiah 40:9 Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains. When you are at the base you see but little: the mountain itself appears to be but one-half as high as it really is. Confined in a little valley, you discover scarcely anything but the rippling brooks as they descend into…
