I Will Spare Them
February 11 I will spare them Malachi 3:17
And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts,
in that day when I make up my jewels;
and I will spare them, as a man spareth
his own son that serveth him.
Precious assurance! But whom will the Lord spared? All His children, - especially those who speak of His goodness, witness to His faithfulness, think upon His name, and honour Him before an evil generation.
He says, “They shall be mine, in that day when I make up my jewels, and I will spare them as a father spareth his obedient son.”
If we are still aiming at the Lord’s glory, and walking by the Lord’s word, we have nothing to fear from any of His dispensations.
He will shield us from danger, sanctify our troubles, and secure our best interest. If we are living to His praise, we may safely leave our wants and our comforts in His hands; He will supply the one and preserve the other.
He says “Fear thou not, for I am with thee.” “Bring every trouble to my throne, every want to my fulness; I am EL-SHADDAL, God all-sufficient; enough in the absence of every one and every thing.
I am your God; I may punish the nations, but I will spare you.
Believe this and be happy. Rejoice in this and you glorify me. You are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then AN HEIR of God through Christ.
Though I punish the world, I will spare you.”
Jesus, my Saviour, and my Lord!
‘Tis good to trust thy name:
Thy power, thy faithfulness, and love,
Will ever be the same.
