(James Smith, “The Wealthy Family!”)
“There is no lack to those who fear Him!” Psalm 34:9
The Lord’s people all
fear Him–that is, they fear to offend Him, and desire above all things to please Him. And though they may appear poor–they are really rich! God has provided all good things for them–and He gives all good things to them.
They have a solid peace, flowing from a knowledge of acceptance with God, through the blood of Jesus;
a joyful hope, which blooms with immortality;
are assured of strength equal to their day; and of sanctifying grace to make all their troubles work for their good.
They are content with God’s wise and holy appointments, and godliness with contentment is a good fortune;
acquiesce in the will of God, and are often filled with joy that flows from His presence.
They obtain victory over the temptations which would ensnare them;
live above the world, which would allure and beguile them;
are sure of support in death;
look forward to a joyful resurrection;
anticipate Heaven as their portion forever!
There is no lack to them, for all they can truly need, is promised–and every promise is confirmed by the blood of Jesus!
Therefore Jehovah is theirs–along with all that He is, and has!
Because His power is their support;
wisdom is their guide;
His fullness is their fortune;
mercy is their friend!
His love is their Heaven.
Just think of having Almighty God for your present, constant, eternal Friend!
Therefore Think of having the wealth of Deity to supply and satisfy you!
And if you sincerely fear God–then this is the reality of your case!
No truth is more clearly revealed in Scripture.
No subject is more rich with consolation!
Strength may be exhausted,
because health may decline,
courage may fail,
riches may flee,
friends may forsake,
enemies may increase,
all circumstances may change for the worse–
but “those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing!”
Sweet promise of a faithful God!
Here, pilgrim is your staff–take it and travel home!
Saint, is your cordial–drink and forget your misery!
Believer is your fortune–take it and live upon it, while a resident here below.
Fearful soul is your antidote–use it to dispel your fears and cheer your fainting heart!
“The young lions may lack food and go hungry–but there is no lack to those who fear Him!”
Here is wealth, comfort, and
all that we can need for life or death, time or eternity!
