He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
I. GOD HAS THE RIGHT OF SUPREME CONTROL. He is our Creator, Benefactor, Lawgiver, Preserver, Redeemer and Judge.
II. HIS CHOICE IS THE RESULT OF ETERNAL WISDOM. We cannot descry the future, but God sees the end from the beginning. We are fallible, but God never errs. Things with us are often bounded by time; God always includes eternity.
III. HE LOVES ALL HIS SINCERE FOLLOWERS.
IV. IT PRESERVES US FROM TAKING AN IMPROPER COURSE. Quietness and confidence in God is our best preservative in the path of integrity. When Israel lost their confidence, they swerved.
V. IT IS THE HAPPIEST STATE OF MIND ON EARTH. Take a few cases — Bereavement (Genesis 43:14); Affliction (Job 1:21); Uncertainty (Acts 21:13, 14); Death (2 Peter 1:14).
VI. HE WORKS ALL THINGS FOR HIS OWN GLORY. Improvements —
1. Let the sinful wanderer adopt the sentiment, and from that day he will be blessed.
2. Let the Lord's own children learn to say, "Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven." "Thou shalt choose our inheritance for us."
