Did you never run for shelter in a storm, and find fruit which you expected not? Did you never go to God for safeguard, driven by outward storms, and there find unexpected fruit?
To bless God for mercies is the way to increase them; to bless Him for miseries is the way to remove them.
Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayers and won with thanks.
The riches of His free grace cause me daily to triumph over all the temptations of the wicked one, who is very vigilant, and seeks all occasions to disturb me.
God will not be behind-hand in love to us: for our drop, we shall receive an ocean.
