Sunday Meditation – God Our Sustainer

“When we come to God for fresh benefits of grace, it is always good to remember his former benefits. Our current needs should stir us up to pay the interest of thanksgiving on past blessings. We are unworthy of new mercies when we do not acknowledge the mercies we have already received. The greater the danger, the more we should call to mind God’s former kindness. As we look beyond creation, we lose ourselves in the abyss of eternity. As for man, he passes through the world in a few days, and returns to dust in the grave. But God is our dwelling place. He bestowed upon us the strength of his power, and the riches of his love. There is no reason to doubt that he will continue to do so. The vast mountains were created by his hand, and much less of his power is needed to sustain us in our need.”
