No Good Thing Withheld.

Psalm 84:11 (NLT) For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.

Just as God provided Elijah with bread, meat, and water by the brook Cherith (1 Kin. 17:3–4), He can provide for you. Is your supply of meal running low? Is your flask of oil almost empty? Then where is the God of Elijah? He is still with His Elijahs. And He is still with the widows, just as He was with the widow of Zarephath (1 Kin. 17:14).

Do you think that God is dead? Has it crossed your mind that Divine Providence is a failure? Do you feel that God is unable to provide for His own? Do not think that! If you do, your unbelief will prove a punishment. It will break that meal barrel. It will dash that oil flask to pieces. If you waiver, you will receive nothing from the Lord. But if you keep strong in faith, you will find that Jehovah Jireh—the Lord will provide—is still His name.

“The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Ps. 84:11). God can help us to have such confidence in Him that we shall find the Lord God of Elijah supplies our daily needs and feeds us until we want no more.

Sing this song, you tried and tested ones, sing it now:

The Lord my Shepherd is

I shall be well supplied;

Since He is mine and I am His,

What can I want beside?
