“…lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.”– Luke 22:35
The Lord will always provide for His own people, who keep His company, do His will, and aim at His glory. If He sends us, though He chooses to carry the purse, our bread shall be given, and our water shall be sure.
The disciples went out unfurnished, but then Jesus commanded them; they return, and confessed that they lacked nothing, the God of providence supplied them. If we are in the Lord’s way, we may rest assured that we shall meet the Lord’s messengers bringing our supply. They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. He notices our wants, remembers His promises, times His mercies, and proves Himself a faithful God.
Have you lacked anything? for body? for soul? He Who has supplied the past, will provide for the future. Jesus is full of grace; go, and receive, that your joy may be full. Jesus is the God of providence; look to Him, trust in Him, plead with Him, and you shall never be destitute.
Believe His word, He cannot deny Himself; trust in His faithfulness, and He will put honour upon thy faith, fulfilling His own word. “Thy bread shall be given thee, and thy water shall be sure.” (James Smith, 1840)
His love in times past, Forbids me to think
He’ll leave me at last, In trouble to sink;
Each sweet Ebenezer I have in review
Confirms His good pleasure To help me quite through.
