The gift He gave....more than enough, my contentment

HIMSELF (part 2)
by A.B Simpson


And so I thought the healing would be an it too, that the Lord would take me like an old run down clock, wind me up, and set me going like a machine. It is not thus at all. I found it was Himself coming in instead and giving me what I needed at the moment. I wanted to have a great stock, so that I could feel rich; a great store laid up for many years, so that I would not be dependent upon Him the next day; but He never gave me such a store. I never had more holiness or healing at one time than i needed for that hour. He said " My child you must come to Me for the next breath because I love you so dearly I want you to come all the time. If I gave you a great supply, you would do without Me and would not come to Me so often; now you have to come to Me every second, and lie on my breast evvery moment."

He gave me a great fortune, placed thousands and millions at credit, but He gave me a cheque-book with this one condition,"You can never draw more than you need at the time." Every time a cheque was wanted, however, there was the name of Jesus upon it, and so it brought more glory to Him, kept His name before the heavenly world and God was glorified in His Son.
