Last year my morning devotions were spent with Spurgeon in Morning and Evening. This year I have chosen to use The Letters of Samuel Rutherford as my morning spiritual wake up. The Letters of Samuel Rutherford come with high recommendations. Some have referred to these letters as: "the most remarkable series of devotional letters that the literature of the Reformed churches can show." It was said of Robert Murray M'Cheyne that "the Letters of Samuel Rutherford were often in his hand." Richard Baxter's view was that, apart from the Bible, "such a book as Mr. Rutherford's Letters the world never saw the like," while to Charles Spurgeon they were "the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of mere men."
