"They need not depart." Matthew 14:16

HOW many things occur to lead or drive us away from Jesus! But we need not depart from Him; He has everything we can possibly want, for body or soul, for time or eternity. He gives grace and glory, and no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. Having called us, and drawn us to Himself, He wishes us to abide with Him; and if tempted to leave Him, to whom can we go? He will supply every want, sanctify every trial, enable us to overcome every difficulty, and make us happy in His own love. The world will allure you, Satan will try to drive you, and inward depravity will prompt you to wander; but keep near to Jesus this day; think of Him, look to Him, call upon Him, converse with Him; make Him your companion, Friend, and God. There is no real happiness, or solid peace, but in the presence and blessing of Jesus; and when He giveth quietness none can make trouble. If you wander, if you look to others, if you set your affection on anything below, you cannot justify your conduct, for you need not depart. He is all. He has all. He will give all. You have only to believe His word, and your wants shall be all supplied.

O let us every walk in Him,
And nothing know beside;
Nothing desire, nor aught esteem,
But Jesus crucified.
