The Blessed Provision
Every Day And Every Moment
The blessed provision which God has made for all His saints in every age
is PRAYER. How little we realize the value of this marvelous provision!
How much more use all His Saints might make of it every day and every
moment! Take one of the familiar verses in the Psalms and think it over.
"And call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee and thou shalt
praise Me"
(Psalm 50:15). Think of it-- God, an omnipotent God is
speaking to His creature. He wants us to seek His face, to come in His
"Call upon Me in the day of trouble." Do not look any where
else, do not turn to human beings, but look and turn to Me. And a God,
who cannot lie, the God of Truth assures His child.
"I will deliver thee."
What a pledge and what an assurance! The Lord of infinite wealth and
resources, the Lord of all power, who controls all agencies saith,
"I will
deliver thee."
There is nothing too hard for the Lord. He just asks the
opportunity of His people to manifest His power in their behalf. Unbelief
so often robs Him of that opportunity.

And still greater stands out this blessed provision in the New Testament.
"And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father
may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will
do it"
(John 14:13-14). What words these are! And how many similar
promises came from the lips of the Son of God! And here are His people
in a world of adversity, a world under Satan's power, tried and tested; in
a world where we may glorify Him and be used by Him in service for
eternity, and yet how little after all we make constant use of His blessed
provision for us! As darkness becomes denser, as the enemy's attacks
become more furious, perplexities abound and difficulties increase, we all
need to give ourselves to prayer as never before. And we may confidently
expect the manifestation of His power in our behalf.
"Let us therefore
come boldly unto the Throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy, and
find grace to help in time of need"
(Hebrews 4:16).
