Spurgeon using prophetic insight

Sam Storms gives an example of specific insight that Spurgeon was given.  ‘While preaching at Exeter Hall, [Spurgeon] once broke off his sermon and pointed in a certain direction, declaring: “Young man, those gloves you are wearing have not been paid for: you have stolen them from your employer.”  After the service, an obviously pale and agitated young man approached Spurgeon and begged to speak with him privately.  He placed a pair of gloves on the table and said, “It’s the first time I have robbed my master, and I will not do it again.  You won’t expose me, sir, will you?  It would kill my mother if she heard that I had become a thief.”
