“God knows what his people suffer; how much, how long, from whom, and for what. His people should find consolation in this knowledge. That trials are permitted by him; that they are apportioned by him; that they are designed by and from him; and when the design is accomplished, it will be removed by him.”  (Unknown)

“In choosing those that are unworthy, He has no respect but only to His own mere goodness.  What want we more?  Then it is good reason that we should hold ourselves contented with God’s will, bridle ourselves, and let Him choose whom He likes. His will is the sovereign rule of equity and right.”  John Calvin  (1509-1564)

“We do not to wait and work to be forgiven.  The work has long since been done.  The decree went forth, the releasing word was spoken, and the forgiveness was declared when Jesus left his tomb. All that any man has to do on that subject is to believe it, and to appropriate to himself the glorious reprieve.”  (Joseph Augustus Seiss, 1823-1904)

“The heart is ever prone to divide its confidence between God and the creature.  This will never do.  We must  ‘wait only  upon God.’  ‘He only’ must be our ‘rock,’ our ‘salvation,’ and our ‘defense.’  Then we are frequently tempted to look to an arm of flesh first, and when that fails us, we look to God.  This will never do either.”  Charles Mackintosh  (1858)
