“In Him Dwelleth the Fulness.”

by William Arthur Garratt

OH, the depth of the riches of that heart of love, unfathomable in its fulness, and yet ever sensitive to our smallest need!  So great is the plenitude of the Father’s storehouse, that we cannot be in close proximity to Him and not receive of its bounty; therefore let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, for though He is a King, yet at the same time, He is our Father, and only waiting to be asked, in child-like simplicity, feeling sure He can supply the need.  Do not fear to bring thy smallest grief or want to Him; they are all known beforehand by the One who has sent them, and His tender heart of sympathy yearns to give thee relief.  Go in the strength of His sweet promise, “Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.”  Jehovah alone can and will satisfy where everything else fails; and, oh, may we be as waiting vessels, ready to be filled from that “deep, sweet well of love,” and with the blest assurance that we shall not be sent empty away.  “He giveth liberally, good measure, pressed down and flowing over.”
Friend, remember, He is the only one to whom you can bring every need, and He only is sufficient to meet each one.
Lord, teach us daily to know more of that love which passeth knowledge, that we may be “filled with all the fulness of God.”
