Resources that Endure

The people of this world have always fussed and argued over this world's resource—hope for life, health, financial prosperity, international peace, and a set of favorable circumstances. These resources are good in their own way, but they have a fatal defect—they are uncertain and transitory! Today, we have them; tomorrow they are gone. It is this way with all earthly things since sin came to upset the beautiful order of nature and made the human race victims of chance and change. We desire for all of God's children a full measure of every safe and pure blessing that the earth and sky might unite to bring them. But if in the sovereign will of God things go against us, what do we have left? If life and health are placed in jeopardy, what about our everlasting resources? If the world's foundations crumble, we still have God and in Him we have everything essential to our ransomed beings forever! We have Christ, who died for us; we have the Scriptures, which can never fail; we have the faithful Holy Spirit. If worst comes to worst here below, we have our Father's house and our Father's welcome!

Verse

I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2

Thought

If the world's foundations crumble, we still have God and in Him we have everything essential to our ransomed beings forever!

Prayer

Lord, let me remember that You are the soul provider for everything that I need.
