Psalms 119:72 by mvcquotes on DeviantArt

Jesus’s words are better unto me than thousands of gold and silver! Just what would you pay to obtain absolute truth? If you knew that someone could provide you with all the answers to life, give you direction in the way you should live your life, and even provide you with a secure spot in Heaven, just how much would you pay that person? I’d venture to say if there was such a person, you’d probably sell everything you had to have these kinds of guarantees, amen?

Psa 19:9  The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 

God’s word provides us everything we need in life. It endures forever according to Psalm 19:9. But what else does God’s word provide to us? First and foremost, its pages depict salvation which secures where we spend eternity. There are countless verses which show us the way but these two show us who provides that salvation and where the “world” gets it wrong:

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

Secondly, once we recognize that God is the source of everything we have, we can rest assured He will provide exactly what we need, when we need it! Amen? The Bible guarantees peace and joy when we seek God’s will for our lives. We may not like the situation we are in but rest assured that God has allowed it for His glory and for your benefit!

Php 4:19  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

Where are you today, Christian? Are you dependent on money and status more than Christ and His provision in life? Do a moral inventory and see where you’re sitting?
