Psalm 67:6April 27 Morning
It is strange how little we make use of the spiritual blessings which God gives us, but it is stranger still how little we make use of God himself. Though he is "our own God," we focus ourselves seldom on Him, and ask but little of Him. Why do we seldom ask Gods counsel! How often do we go about our business, without seeking His guidance! In our troubles we constantly strive to bear our burdens ourselves, instead of casting them upon the Lord, that he may sustain us! This is not because we may not, for the Lord seems to say, "I am yours, come and make use of me as you need. You may freely come to my store, and the oftener the more welcome." It is our own fault if we don't make free with the riches of our God. Since you have such a friend, and He invites you, draw strength from him daily. Never want while you have a God to go to, never fear or faint while you have God to help you. Go to your treasure chest and take whatever you need -- there is all that you can want. Learn the divine skill of making God all things to thee. He can supply thee with all, or, better still, he can be to thee instead of all. Let me urge thee, then, to make use of thy God. Make use of him in prayer. Go to him often, because he is thy God. O, wilt thou fail to use so great a privilege? Fly to him, tell him all thy wants. Use him constantly by faith at all times. If some dark providence has beclouded thee, use thy God as a "sun;" if some strong enemy has beset thee, find in Jehovah a "shield," for he is a sun and shield to his people. If thou hast lost thy way in the mazes of life, use him as a "guide," for he will direct thee. Whatever thou art, and wherever thou art, remember God is just what thou wantest, and just where thou wantest, and that he can do all thou wantest.
