God . . . richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
1 Tim-othy 6:17

By the pen of Charles Spurgeon:

Our Lord Jesus is always giving, never withdrawing His hand for one instant. As long as there is even one vessel of His grace not yet full, His oil will continue to flow. He is an ever-shining sun, He is manna always falling into the camp, and He is a rock in the desert, continually sending forth streams of life from His pierced side. The rain showers of His grace are always falling, the river of His bounteous blessings is forever flowing, and the wellspring of His love is continually overflowing. And just as our King can never die, His grace can never fail.

Daily we pluck His fruit, and daily His branches bend themselves toward our hand with a fresh supply of mercy. Every day of every week is a feast day, so as many days as there are in a year is how many banquets we celebrate each year.

Who has ever walked from His door unblessed? Who has ever left His table hungry? Who has ever left His embrace unchanged? “His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning” (Lam. 3:22 – 23 ESV) and fresh every evening. Who can know the number of His -benefits or count His blessings?

Every grain of sand falling through the hourglass of time is but His latest reminder of a myriad of His mercies. The wings of our hours are covered with the silver of His kindness and the gold of His affection. The river of time flows from the mountains of eternity, revealing the golden sand of His favor. And the countless stars are just the standard bearers of even more innumerable multitudes of His blessings.

Who can count the blessings He bestows on Jacob or number the endless mercies He extends to Israel, for they are more numerous than the specks of dust on earth. How can my soul offer Him the praise He is due, for He daily fills me with His blessings and crowns me with His loving-kindness.

Oh, that my praise would be as ceaseless as His blessings! Oh, my miserable tongue, how can you be silent? Wake up, I tell you, or you will never bring me glory, only shame.

“Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn” (Ps. 108:2).

By the pen of Jim Reimann:

One of the most beautiful aspects of God’s countless blessings is that although they continually flow, they never delete His supply. And, not only do they fill His children, they fill us to overflowing! As long as we walk in obedience to Him, He continues to pour forth His blessings into our lives, and they continually overflow to those around us.

“Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14). “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him” (John 7:38).

“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail” (Isa. 58:11).

“How can I repay the Lord for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord” (Ps. 116:12 – 13).
