Divine Provision

20 Mar

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 6:30)

Clothes are expensive, and poor believers may be led into anxiety as to where their next suit will come from. The soles are thin; how shall we get new shoes? See how our thoughtful Lord has provided against this care. Our heavenly Father clothes the grass of the field with a splendor such as Solomon could not equal: will He not clothe His own children? We are sure He will. There may be many a patch and a darn, but raiment we shall have.

A poor minister found his clothes nearly threadbare, and so far gone that they would hardly hold together; but as a servant of the Lord he expected his Master to find him his livery. It so happened that the writer on a visit to a friend had the loan of the good man’s pulpit, and it came into his mind to make a collection for him, and there was his suit. Many other cases we have seen in which those who had served the Lord have found Him considerate of their wardrobe. He who made man so that when he had sinned he needed garments, also in mercy supplied him with them; and those which the Lord gave to our first parents were far better than those they made for themselves.

    The man was an inspiration machine. I even had a set of sideburns like that once, when I was 12 and driving. 🙂

      He is great inspiration. I too had the sideburns like that. I was probably older but at about the same time. I’m glad to know somebody else but me drove young. Younger ones today from town don’t understand. Thank

        The 12 years old was from your other post. I was a bit older too. How could we have thought that was cool?
        My family enjoys looking at those pics and laughing at my expense.

          I don’t know how we thought it looked good. Maybe the British Invasion blinded us. I think those old pictures are sick to look at. Especially the bell bottoms.
