From God’s Goodness.

Psalm 68:10 (NLT) There your people finally settled, and with a bountiful harvest, O God, you provided for your needy people.

All God’s gifts are prepared in advance and reserved for needs foreseen. He knows our future needs, and out of the fullness of Christ Jesus He provides from His goodness. You may therefore trust Him for all your future needs. He has infallible foreknowledge about every one of them. He can say to you in any condition, “I knew that you would need this.”

A traveler journeying across a desert may pitch the tent only to find that some essentials were not brought along. “Ah,” says the traveler, “I did not foresee this. If I could start this journey over, I would bring these necessary items.” God has foreknowledge of all that His wandering children require. When those needs arise, the supplies are ready. It is goodness that He has prepared for the poor in heart. Goodness, and goodness only. “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Cor. 12:9). “As your days, so shall your strength be” (Deut. 33:25).

Is your heart heavy? God knew it would be. The comfort your heart wants is treasured in the sweet assurance of our text. You are poor and needy, but He knows your need and has the exact blessing you require. Plead this promise, believe it, and you will obtain fulfillment.

Do you feel that you were never so consciously vile as you are now? The crimson fountain is still open with all its former power to wash your sins away.

You will never be in a position where Christ cannot help you. There will never be a bind in your spiritual life where Jesus Christ will not be equal to the emergency. Your history is foreknown and provided for in Jesus Christ.
