Tillotson: trusting God for the result

Sunday, March 20, 2011
    Feast of Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne, Missionary, 687
    We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
    —Hebrews 3:14 (NIV)
    We distrust the providence of God, when, after we have used all our best endeavours, and begged His blessing upon them, we torment ourselves about the issue and event of things.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. V, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon LXXXIX, p. 77 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made constant provision for Your church.
