One blessing after another!
“From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another!“ John 1:16
Our Lord Jesus is ever giving–and does not for a solitary instant withdraw His hand.
As long as there is a vessel of grace not yet full to the brim–the oil shall not be stopped.
He is a sun ever-shining.
He is manna always falling round the camp.
He is a rock in the desert, ever sending out streams of life from His smitten side.
The rain of His grace is always dropping.
The river of His bounty is ever-flowing.
The well-spring of His love is constantly overflowing.
As our King can never die–so His grace can never fail.
Daily we pluck His fruit, and daily His branches bend down to our hand with a fresh store of mercy.
Who has ever returned from His door, unblessed?
Who has ever risen from His table, unsatisfied? …
His mercies are new every morning–and fresh every evening.
Who can know the number of His benefits, or recount His infinite bounties? …
Who can count the dust of the benefits which He bestows on His redeemed people, or number of His mercies towards us? How shall my soul extol Him–who daily loads us with benefits, and who crowns us with loving-kindness?
O that my praise could be as ceaseless as His bounty! O miserable tongue, how can you be silent?
“Praise the Lord, O my soul! Do not forget all of His benefits!” Psalm 103:2
