Skeletons of Sermons
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casts away the substance of the wicked.
I. GOD HAS BOUNTIFULLY PROVIDED EVEN FOR THE UNGODLY. Has He shown such concern for the wicked as to provide for them in the gospel "a feast of fat things full of marrow," and will He disregard the righteous?
II. GOD IS PECULIARLY INTERESTED IN THE WELFARE OF THE RIGHTEOUS. The righteous are God's "peculiar treasure above all people."
III. GOD HAS PLEDGED HIS WORD THAT THEY SHALL NEVER WANT ANYTHING THAT IS GOOD. Exceeding numerous, great and precious are the promises which God has given to His people. He may seem to leave His people in straits, but it shall be only for the more signal manifestation of His love and mercy towards them.
1. A word of reproof. Many do not make their profiting to appear as they ought.
2. A word of consolation. Some may put away from them this promise under the idea that they are not of the character to whom it belongs.
