Watson: a cause for joy

Wednesday, October 15, 2014
    Feast of Teresa of Avila, Mystic, Teacher, 1582
    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
    —Romans 8:28 (NIV)
    To know that nothing hurts the godly, is a matter of comfort; but to be assured that ALL things which fall out shall cooperate for their good, that their crosses shall be turned into blessings, that showers of affliction water the withering root of their grace and make it flourish more; this may fill their hearts with joy till they run over.
    ... Thomas Watson (c.1620-1686), preface, A Divine Cordial [1657], Religious Tract Society, 1848, p. 3 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:28; Deut. 8:5; Ps. 23:4-6; 91:9-10; 126:5-6; Pr. 3:11-12; Matt. 5:4; Rom. 8:18; 2 Cor. 4:17; Heb. 12:7; Jas. 1:2-3; 5:11; 1 Pet. 1:6; 4:13-14; 5:10; Rev. 3:19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in faith I embrace Your discipline.
