No good thing will he withhold




“For Jehovah God is
a sun and a shield:
Jehovah will give grace and glory;
No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
(Ps 84:11 ASV)



  The Bedside Watchman


-- Psalm 84
NO GOOD THING WILL BE WITHHELD



"THE Lord God is a sun and shield:
the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly".

Here we have a most encouraging picture of the kindness of Him with whom we have to do.
This character is the central glory of revelation.
We fail, perhaps, at all times to remember it sufficiently.
Many things help to cloud it from our view.
Our weakness, our shortcomings, our pre-occupations in other directions,
the weariness of the constant fight of faith,
and other things, prevent us from realising
as constantly as we might,
that the Eternal Father,
who invites us to Himself by Christ,
is full of tenderness and compassion,
and overflowing with loving-kindness
to such as keep His covenant,
and even abounding in long-suffering
and goodness towards those who are far from Him.
