“Not only were we unable to bring ourselves into the faith but we cannot continue in it without divine strength.  Because of our proneness to apostatize, due to the subtlety and strength of our spiritual enemies and the evil of the world in which we live, only God’s power alone can keep us.” (Jude 24).  Arthur W. Pink  (1886-1952)

“Let no appearing impossibilities make you question God’s accomplishment of any of his gracious words.  Though you cannot see how the thing can be done, ‘tis enough if God has said that he will do it…Though the valleys be so deep that we cannot see the bottom, and the mountains so high that we cannot see the tops of them, yet God knows how to raise the one and level the other.”  (Timothy Cruso; 1656-1697)

“The more I understand of the character of God, as revealed in Scripture, the more shall I see that he must be sovereign, and the more shall I rejoice from my inmost heart that He is so.   It was God’s sovereign will that fixed the time of my birth.  It is the same will that has fixed the day of my death.  And was not the day of my conversion fixed as certainly by that same will?”  Horatius Bonar (1808-1893)
