Quoted from Streams in the Desert 2 August 9


He . . . hangeth the earth upon nothing (Job 26:7).


"Rest upon God to do for you more than you can understand In looking to God for deliverance of any kind, we are prone to try to discover what material He has on hand to work on in coming to our relief. It is so human to look and crave for something in sight that will help the Lord in supplying our needs. In time of desperation, if we can only find a little something for God to begin on, we seem so much better satisfied To need a sum of money and not to be able to think of a friend, a man, or a monied institution from which It might be obtained, gives a dark background to the scene. The outlook is all liabilities, with no resources to help out To God's child, what is the real situation? Is there nothing but liabilities? Are there no resources? Yea, thousands, millions, billions, trillions! Where are they? Above you, below you, around you. Earth and air are fun of wealth untold. Keep your eye on Him. It is not necessary for us to see any help in sight, nor is It really necessary for God to have any relief on hand. He does not need anything to begin on. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." What did He make them out of? Nothing. Pretty satisfactory earth to be made of nothing. Remember, not a scrap of anything was used to make it. "He. . . hangeth the earth upon nothing." It hangs all right A God who can make an earth, a sun, a moon, and stars out of nothing, and keep them hanging on nothing, can supply all your needs, whether He has anything to begin work with or not Trust Him and He will see you through, though He has to make your supplies out of nothing.


Adapted from a tract"


God's plan is that "The just shall live [sustain their very life] by faith." How does faith come? So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself) (Romans 10:17 Amplified Bible). Hear and see the lips of your Messiah and your life shall be sustained; He shall supply all your needs.
