The Golden Chain
Soul Snack 159/12 ...The Golden Chain#
God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all-sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good word and work. (2 Cor 9:8)
BELIEVER, there is an all-sufficiency in all things; surely you are thoroughly furnished indeed far much more than just adequately equipped.
Grace is no scanty thing, doled out in pittances. It is a glorious treasury, which the key of prayer can always unlock, but never empty.
Grace is a fountain, fully flowing, ever flowing and over flowing.
Mark the three ALLs in the above precious promise. They are the three-fold link in a golden chain, descending from The Throne of Grace. All grace, all sufficiency in all things with an unrestrained abundance. Oh what a precious thought - my needs cannot impoverish His inexhaustible grace-laden treasury. Uncounted myriads across unnumbered centuries have and still are hourly depending upon it, drawing from it and yet there is no diminution.
His grace I can bank on even though I have made no deposits.
My soul, do you not love to dwell on that all-abounding grace? Your own insufficiency in everything, met with an all-sufficiency in all things. Grace in all circumstances and situations, in all vicissitudes and changes, in all the varied seasons of the Christian's being. Grace in sunshine and storm, in health and in sickness, in life and in death.
Grace for the old believer and the young believer, the tried believer and the tired believer, the tempted believer and the safe believer.
Grace is to carry His joyous cup with a steady hand, grace is to drink the bitter cup with an unmurmuring spirit and grace is to enjoy the prosperity of heaven.
Yet surely the purpose of grace, the padlock to this Golden Chain, is to express through both love and maybe tears, not my will but your will be done!
