“And of Joseph he said,
Blessed of the Lord be his land,
for the precious things of heaven,
for the dew,
and for the deep that coucheth beneath”
We may be rich in such things as Joseph
obtained, and we may have them in a higher
sense. Oh, for “the precious things of heaven”!
Power with God, and the manifestation of power
from God, are most precious. We would enjoy the
peace of God, the joy of the Lord, the glory of
our God. The benediction of the three divine
Persons in love, and grace, and fellowship we
prize beyond the most fine gold. The things of
earth are as nothing in preciousness compared
with the things of Heaven.
“The dew.” How precious is this! How we pray and
praise, when we have the dew! What refreshing,
what growth, what perfume, what life there is in
us when the dew is about! Above all things else,
as plants of the Lord’s own right hand planting,
we need the dew of His Holy Spirit.
“The deep that coucheth beneath.”
Surely this refers to that unseen ocean
underground which supplies all the fresh springs
which make glad the earth. Oh to tap the eternal
fountains! This is an unspeakable boon; let no
believer rest till he possesses it. The
all-sufficiency of Jehovah is ours for ever.
Let us resort to it now.
