Until we are brought into the depths of poverty, we shall never know nor value Christ's riches.
If, then, you are a child of God, a poor and needy soul, a tempted and tried believer in Christ---God shall supply all your needs! They may be very great.
It may seem to you, sometimes, as though there were not upon all the face of the earth such a wretch as you---as though there never could be a child of God in your state---so dark, so stupid, so blind and ignorant, so proud and worldly, so presumptuous and hypocritical, so continually backsliding after idols, so continually doing things that you know are hateful in God's sight.
But whatever your need be---t is not beyond the reach of divine supply! And the deeper your need, the more is Jesus glorified in supplying it.
Do not say then, that your case is too bad---your needs are too many---your perplexities too great---your temptations too powerful.
No case can be too bad! No temptations can be too powerful! No sin can be too black! No perplexity can be too hard!
No state in which the soul can get, is beyond the reach of the Almighty and Compassionate love, that burns in the bosom of the Redeemer!
