Limitless Riches


My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by
Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Paul's God is our God and will supply all our need. Paul felt sure of
this in reference to the Philippians, and we feel sure of it as to
ourselves. God will do it, for it is like Him: He loves us, He delights to
bless us, and it will glorify Him to do so. His pity, His power, His
love, His faithfulness, all work together that we be not famished.

What a measure doth the Lord go by: "According to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus." The riches of His grace are large, but what shall we
say of the riches of His glory? His "riches of glory by Christ
Jesus"-who shall form an estimate of this? According to this immeasurable
measure will God fill up the immense abyss of our necessities. He makes the
Lord Jesus the receptacle and the channel of His fullness, and then He
imparts to us His wealth of love in its highest form. Hallelujah!

The writer knows what it is to be tried in the work of the Lord.
Fidelity has been recompensed with anger, and liberal givers have stopped
their subscriptions; but he whom they sought to oppress has not been one
penny the nay, rather he has been the richer; for this promise has been
true, "My God shall supply all your need." God's supplies are surer
than any bank.
