It is only by God’s grace and the working of His Holy Spirit, that we are brought to an awareness that God is not only our maker but that he also supports us by His power, rules us by His providence, cares for us by His goodness, and gives to us all kinds of blessings.
We are gently and sweetly persuaded that we are to expect everything from Him and Him alone. We must be brought to a point where we ask everything from God. Then we not only have reason to give joyful thanksgiving, but we are eager to give to God the glory that is rightfully His.
It is this knowledge that a real life of faith in Christ and that a beneficial knowledge of God springs up! This is what teaches us to live a life of faith and holiness to the glory of God.
What is it? The knowledge that God, and God alone, becomes the very fountain and source of every good thing in our lives. It is the knowledge that we can trust Him as the supply for everything and every need that we will ever experience.
