PURITAN SERMONS Vol. 2
"All is ordered by God wisely. As God at the first made all things with infinite wisdom, so He doth also dispose and govern all things with infinite wisdom. Reason with thyself in secret thus: "Did God know how to make my person, and doth He not know who to order my condition? He that hath wisdom enough to steer the great vessels of the world and of the church, hath He not wisdom enough to steer my little boat? He that hath by an unerring providence brought so many saints save to heaven, doth He not know the best way to bring me safe thither also? Shall He mistake, in my case, who never yet in all the works that have passed through His hands, was guilty of the least mistake?"
"All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies." (Psalm 25:10) All is in mercy, or in order to mercy, to God's covenant-people. I do not say, that all is mercy to these formally, as to the things themselves which befall them; but I say, all is mercy, or in order to mercy. Afflictions are not mercy in their formal nature, but they are of mercy originally, they coming from God's love, and for mercy finally, God by them designing good, and nothing but good, to them that love Him. Others have the sovereignty and righteousness of God to awe them; but the saints have the mercy and goodness of God to work their hearts to a quiet submission to His will.
God always knows what is best for His, such is His wisdom! And He always doeth what is best for His, such is His mercy! What a heart-composing meditation is this!"
