> Jehoiachin was not sent away from the king's palace with a store to last him formonths, but his provision was given him as a daily pension. Herein he wellpictures the happy position of all the Lord's people. A daily portion is all thata man really wants. We do not need tomorrow's supplies; that day has not yetdawned, and its wants are as yet unborn. The thirst which we may suffer in themonth of June does not need to be quenched in February, for we do not feel it yet;if we have enough for each day as the days arrive we shall never know want.

Sufficient for the day is all that we can enjoy. We cannot eat or drink or wearmore than the day's supply of food and raiment; the surplus gives us the care ofstoring it, and the anxiety of watching against a thief. One staff aids atraveller, but a bundle of staves is a heavy burden. Enough is not only as good asa feast, but is all that the greatest glutton can truly enjoy. This is all that weshould expect; a craving for more than this is ungrateful. When our Father doesnot give us more, we should be content with his daily allowance. Jehoiachin's caseis ours, we have a sure portion, a portion given us of the king, a graciousportion, and a perpetual portion. Here is surely ground for thankfulness.
> Beloved Christian reader, in matters of grace you need a daily supply. You have nostore of strength. Day by day must you seek help from above. It is a very sweetassurance that a daily portion is provided for you. In the word, through theministry, by meditation, in prayer, and waiting upon God you shall receive renewedstrength. In Jesus all needful things are laid up for you. Then enjoy yourcontinual allowance. Never go hungry while the daily bread of grace is on thetable of mercy.

> One of the most touching and teaching of the Saviour's miracles is before ustonight. The woman was very ignorant. She imagined that virtue came out of Christby a law of necessity, without his knowledge or direct will. Moreover, she was astranger to the generosity of Jesus' character, or she would not have gone behindto steal the cure which he was so ready to bestow. Misery should always placeitself right in the face of mercy. Had she known the love of Jesus' heart, shewould have said, "I have but to put myself where he can see me--his omnisciencewill teach him my case, and his love at once will work my cure." We admire herfaith, but we marvel at her ignorance. After she had obtained the cure, sherejoiced with trembling: glad was she that the divine virtue had wrought a marvelin her; but she feared lest Christ should retract the blessing, and put a negativeupon the grant of his grace:

little did she comprehend the fulness of his love! Wehave not so clear a view of him as we could wish; we know not the heights anddepths of his love; but we know of a surety that he is too good to withdraw from atrembling soul the gift which it has been able to obtain. But here is the marvelof it: little as was her knowledge, her faith, because it was real faith, savedher, and saved her at once. There was no tedious delay--faith's miracle wasinstantaneous. If we have faith as a grain of mustard seed, salvation is ourpresent and eternal possession. If in the list of the Lord's children we arewritten as the feeblest of the family, yet, being heirs through faith, no power,human or devilish, can eject us from salvation. If we dare not lean our heads uponhis bosom with John, yet if we can venture in the press behind him, and touch thehem of his garment, we are made whole. Courage, timid one! thy faith hath savedthee; go in peace. "Being justified by faith, we have peace with God."

daily, yes daily.
The Lords prayer guides us to daily seek His provision,"give is this day, our daily bread".

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
