“As your days, so shall your strength be.” Deuteronomy 33:25
God’s storehouses of grace are never opened to us until we really need their blessing. God places them, so to speak, along our life-path — the right supply, at the right point. By the plan of God for His children . . .
in every desert–there are oases;
at the foot of each sharp, steep hill there are staffs for climbing;
in every dark gorge there are lighted lamps;
at every river of difficult there is a bridge.
But we find none of these until we come to the place where we need them. And why should we?
Will it not be soon enough to see the bridge when we stand by the river?
Will it not be soon enough, when it grows dark for the lamps to shine out?
Will it not be soon enough, when the cupboard is empty for God to send bread?
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
