Bless The Lord And Forget None Of His Benefits, Part V
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. Psalm 103:5
The German pastor and founder of the largest orphanage in England, George Mueller used to claim the scripture in which God said, "Open your mouth wide and I will fill it." And so, time after time God did indeed fill, not only his mouth but his bank account and provided for 2000 orphans by faith without asking man for anything.
Throughout scripture, over and over are testimonies and instances where God provided supernatural provision, healing, deliverance and extraordinary miracles, confirming to man that He, and He alone is our source. If we would only trust in His benefit plan and seek Him for His wisdom and knowledge, committing our plans and our life into His care, we would see the glorious provision of God who has given to us all things pertaining to life and godliness.
When we submit our lives into the loving hands of our heavenly Father, our youth and vigor are renewed like the eagle because the fear and stress of life is lifted from us as He becomes our Shepherd and overseer of our very being. Children are not stressed out, worrying about who will pay the rent, or provide dinner or pay the bills, because they trust their parents exclusively to provide all of their needs. We would do well to take His word to heart and surrender our lives under His control and receive of His many benefits!
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin
