Psalm 119:65

He Deals With Us Well
Ronnie W. Wolfe

The time must come, and it has come, when the Lord must deal with us. He must do his own bidding toward us. He will bless us, help us, encourage us, heal us, and even discipline us; but all of these things will be done according to his word. He never does anything except it be in accordance with his word. His word is sure; it is true; it is everlasting, and even he must abide by it.

What he does he does well, and that in dealing with his servants. We are his servants, and he will deal well with us. That is why all things can work together for good to us.

The word "dealt" in this verse is a simple word for "to do, or to accomplish." We are the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100:3), the clay for the Potter (Isaiah 64:8), the branches on the vine (John 15:5), his offspring (Acts 17:29); therefore, he deals with us well. He will accomplish his word and his will in us.

May we, then, serve him in being faithful servants. Our service to him manifests our love for him (John 14:15). He is the LORD; we are his servants; let us serve him well.
