"…to the praise of the glory of His grace…" Ephesians 1:6

Breathe away, O man, there’s plenty of air for you

I love these thoughts from Charles Spurgeon on Lamentations 3:22-23 and 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Spurgeon said he was riding home one evening after a heavy-day’s work and feeling very depressed. He thought of this verse. “My grace is sufficient for you.” And then he said he immediately compared himself to a little fish in the Thames River. Apprehensive, lest drinking so many pints of water in the river each day he might drink the Thames dry. And hearing Father Thames say, “Drink away, little fish, my stream is sufficient to you.” And then he thought of a little mouse in the granaries of Joseph in Egypt, afraid lest it might by daily consumption of the corn it needed exhaust the supplies and then starve to death. And when Joseph came along sensing his fear, he said to the little mouse, “Cheer up, little mouse, my granaries are sufficient for you.” Or again he thought of a man climbing to the top of Everest, reaching the lofty summit, dreading lest he might by taking a big deep breath exhaust all the oxygen in the atmosphere, only to hear the Creator say, “Breathe away, O man, there’s plenty of air for you.”

The Lord has plenty of what we need to endure and His supply is new every morning.
