“You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” Psalm 145:16

Who considers these words with sufficient care, and practically draws from them the right conclusions? The hand of God being my chief provision and storehouse, is it not a shame to be anxiously careful for anything? Has the Lord all things in His hand? Then surely I shall receive what He has for me. None will be able to withhold it.

Faith has always a free access to the treasures of God, who is never lacking. Christians have their treasures in such a high place, even in God, that no thief can rob them; and they are sure to have enough in God. Though the Lord should try them with lack a little while — yet He relieves them in due season. Their bread shall fall from heaven, rather than they shall be left without it. You need not, says Christ, seek these other things; they shall be brought to you if you only abide in Me. If this does not comfort and strengthen us, nothing else will.

Many rely on their ample worldly stores. But if they had true faith, this would be their confidence and joy: that God has engaged to supply all their need. If the Lord is pleased to bestow on His servants any particular expression of His providential bounty, they are thankful and make a proper use of it. But if He withholds what they ask for, they learn cheerfully to submit. “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” “Having food and raiment, with these we shall be content.” Christ and plain living, is true prosperity.
