“Even the ‘light’ which angels and glorified spirits enjoy in heaven would be insufficient to banish all fear and fill them with satisfaction, were it not for their confidence in the ‘truth’ of God.  How much more, then, must this be the case with erring, sinful mortals on earth?  When the humble spirit is bowed down under a sense of its utter unworthiness and innumerable weaknesses and defilements, its negligences, follies, and wanderings, what should save from despair but the confidence that he who has been merciful will also be faithful; that God is truth as well as light; that he hath said ‘I will never leave thee nor forsake thee;’ that he ‘cannot lie,’ and that, therefore, ‘his mercy endureth for ever’”?  (Henry March)
