As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you." (Psalm 87:7)
People may promise us many things but they may not fulfill those promises. Every believer should understand that all their blessings come from Christ. He is their fountain that never dries up.
In the KJV Bible we read the same as....all my springs are in thee. (Psalm 87:7b)
If all the money that people promised through e-mails were to come true, we would have ranked somewhere near Bill Gates in terms of riches.
God has promised us that "He will never leave us nor forsake us."
When in a precarious situation, having to sacrifice his son Isaac and being asked where the sacrificial animal was, Abraham answered, "God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." And the two of them went on together. (Genesis 22:8)
And after God stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son, seeing his obedience, God provided a ram for the sacrifice.
So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided." (Genesis 22:14)
Our trust should be in the Lord and no one else. He will provide us with what we need because He is a good father. God may use human channels to provide us with what we need, but these human channels are not the fountain; the fountain is Christ and as the Bible says,
"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)
So let us hold on to the promises of God rather than the promises of men.
