All His Benefits

Thursday, May 3, 2007   4:00 a.m.

Dear Diary,

Christians are sometimes afraid that God is going to take everything away from them and bring them down to the bottom. But He isn’t. Matthew 7:11 says, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” God delights to give good gifts to His children just as we do. We must just trust Him. Trust Him to supply our every need. Scripture reminds us of this in Philippians 4:19, “My God shall supply our every need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” We must trust Him to give us strength to carry on; trust Him to deliver us from all our troubles; trust Him to be our rock, fortress and stronghold. Everyday God loads us with benefits. Psalm 103: 1-5 bares record of this: “BLESS the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psalm 103:1-5).

Thought for Today: “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” (Nahum 1:7).

Sucked Dry

Dear Diary,

Have you ever led someone to the Lord, and as a baby Christian learning to take baby steps, they hang on your every word to the point that you feel sucked dry?  Oswald Chambers said, “Before other souls learn to draw on the life of the Lord Jesus direct, they have to draw on it through you; you have to be literally ‘sucked’ [dry] until they learn to take their nourishment from God” (My Utmost for His Highest, p.40).  Because of this you must always remember from where comes your strength.  Your strength comes directly from the Lord and through His Word.  You must daily go to that store of supply to be replenished.  The Word is nourishment indeed.  Psalm 118:14 says, “The Lord is my strength and song and he has become my Salvation.”  God’s Word will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones (Proverbs 3:8).

Thought for Today:  Others are starving for Christ and you must lead them to the well watered pasture where Jesus feeds His lambs and carries His young.
