And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man’s money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand. Genesis 43:21
Joseph, who gave corn to save his own brethren and the Gentiles from starvation, is a type of Him who gives the bread of life to Jew and Greek – to all that hunger and come to Him for supplies. And in this return of the full money in the sack’s mouth, we are reminded that salvation and satisfaction are all of grace. They are without money and without price. Whatever we yield to Him, He returns in full weight. So like giving unto the Lord not sparingly you will receive of the Lord returns pressed down and shaken together. You will not lack anything.
We bring Him works of merit as the price of our pardon, but they are not noticed.
We bring Him emotion, tears, anguish of soul; but He will have none of them.
We bring Him our faith as a price, instead of as a hand that accepts; and He refuses it.
How many are our mistakes and misunderstandings! Yet He does not for that reason withhold His blessed gift. We get the corn as an act of His free grace, and afterwards, He explains why it was that our careful dues were not accepted.
There is bread enough in God to supply every mouth of desire and hunger in your soul. You may have it for the seeking. The law is – ask, and have. What if you have no money with which to purchase, no earnestness, no merit! Nevertheless, the best wheat of heaven may be yours. Our Father’s love is constantly devising means of expressing itself. It puts money into our sacks; it invites us to its home and spreads banquets before us; it inclines stewards to meet us peacefully; it washes our feet; it takes a tender interest in those we love; it wishes us grace from God; it adjusts itself to our temperaments and puts us at our ease so that gleams of light as to the love of Jesus strike into our hearts!
Where are you standing today and you read this message? Come without money and without a price for His grace is sufficient to keep you unto that day when you are called from works unto reward. Find your calling and stay in place for every call has a blessing that awaits you. Your faith in God is enough to keep you. God bless
