(John Flavel “The Method of Grace“)
“My God will supply all your needs according to His
riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
O say with a melting heart—I have a full Christ,
and He is filled for me! I have . . .
His pure and perfect righteousness to justify me,
and His holiness to sanctify me,
His wisdom to guide me,
and His comforts to refresh me,
His power to protect me,
and His all-sufficiency to supply me.
O be cheerful, be thankful—you have all your
hearts can wish! And yet be humble—it is all
from free-grace to empty and unworthy creatures!
Matthew Henry: “God who feeds the sparrows will not starve His saints! God controls all the concerns of His people, even of those that are most insignificant, and least regarded. This is an encouragement to live in a continual dependence upon God’s providential care! If God numbers our hairs, much more does He number our heads. He takes car that is in the hand of man!”
