II Kings 25:30: "And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the King, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life." In this passage, Jehoiachin, King of Judah, who had been a prisoner for over 37 years, is lifted up and given this allowance. What a change from his former status in the prison. A continual allowance, a daily rate, all the days of his life!

We need this in our lives. Grace for today will not suffice for tomorrow. He, who watches over the sparrow, knows what we have need of for today. “Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.”

Genesis 25:11: "And it came to pass, after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son, Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi." This verse has death, blessing, and sustaining, all rolled into a few words, that are really the threads for a full sermon. Abraham has died. In this can be read so much history, blessing, and promise. It is sad when a prominent patriarch passes from the scene. But God's promises follow Abraham's death, and Isaac finds himself being blessed by the God of his father. He knows and remembers his moment on the mount, when he is spared from death, and a ram is substituted. He knows his life is to be a life of a promised child. His father seeks and finds a wife for him. Now, he is pictured here dwelling by the well. And not just any well. It is the well described in Gen. 16:7-14. This is the fountain that the angel of the Lord found Hagar by in the wilderness, when she was running from Sarai. God promised her there that she would bear a son. His name...Ishmael, the half brother of Isaac. Now, God brings someone else to this fount/well. The God that noticed Hagar, now has His eye on Isaac, and is refreshing Isaac at this same fount.

God has a well for us! Abraham dug wells and built altars. Now, God is providing for his son by this fount. Be faithful! The God that sustained you, will be faithful to your children!

Ezekiel 34:22b: "...I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing." Sometimes we take the showers for granted. We have always had them, and we grow used to their timely coming. But when they are withheld for a time, we realize we have been remiss in appreciating their presence. When dry spells come, it puts a longing in our hearts, and we look expectantly for the showers of blessing. Many times in life, we complain about rainy days. We live for the sunshine. But God knows we need the rain and He sends it. Then the ables turn, and we long for a rainy day to break the heat, and refresh our gardens and crops. As children, we would rush out into the pouring rain on a hot afternoon, and splash and cool off. Even so, the showers of blessing refresh the soul. The song writer says, "Mercy drops round us are falling, but for the showers we plead."
