Away with that guilty atheism which dethrones God from the sovereign control over His own world!
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights" James 1:17
Let us cherish the simple thought that all our blessings are from God. Everything we have emanates from Him, and wears the impress of His love — from the humblest crumb of providential bounty, to the richest blessing of His grace in Jesus.
How apt we are to live and act as if it were otherwise — to speak of . . .
my household treasures.
How prone are we to live independent of Him, forgetful of the Divine Hand which fills our cup, and interweaves our life with happiness.
Whatever our prized possession may be — it is His giving. It was He who planted. It is He who waters every moment — who nurtures and fosters delicate stem and leaf and bud and fruit, lest anything may hurt it.
Away with that guilty atheism which dethrones God from the sovereign control over His own world — which speaks of chance, good luck, good fortune, happy coincidences.
Rather, strive to inscribe above every loan given to you by the Great Proprietor, "This also comes from the Lord Almighty!"
