THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A businessman was being audited by the IRS.
Early on the morning of the interview, his accountant came
and picked him up.
He drove the businessman to the IRS office.
When they got to the door, the accountant said,
"Ok. As your tax consultant I promised to go with you to the
The man said, “But, you’re supposed to go IN with me!”
Accountant: “No,I never said anything about going in!"
Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him:
for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
LIGHT from the WORD.
At the time of the statement in our text, Isaiah was preaching
about the Jewish people being taken into captivity because of their
sin of idolatry.
Yet he says, "...the righteous, ... it shall be well with him."
Would it be "well" when he lost everything he owned and became
a slave to a foreign nation?
Would it be "well" with him when he saw his wife and children put
in chains and carried away?
Would it be "well" with him when he saw the town he loved
destroyed and the temple of God torn down?
It shall be "well" with the "righteous" when he is in prosperity
It is "well" with him when he is in good health or bad health.
It is "well" with him when he is accepted or persecuted.
It is "well" with him at ALL times! Because....
He partakes of the "fruit" of his "doings."
And all his "doings" are with God and of God.
His greatest assurance is that God will be WITH him, no
matter what the circumstances may be.
His constant pleasure is to be in the presence of God and
accepted by God's mercy, grace, and forgiveness.
His constant peace is to know that God provides the best for him
at any moment.
His constant joy is to know that he is being used as a tool in
God's hands, and for His glory.
Oh, my friend, how is it with YOU today?
Are you secure in the imputed righteousness of Christ?
Are you pleasantly employed in His presence and purpose?
No matter what the world does, no matter what the devil says;
if your "doings" are with God, then it is WELL with your soul.
You have it upon DIVINE AUTHORITY.
