Tillotson: trusting God for the result

Sunday, February 28, 2021
    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)
    See also Heb. 3:14; Luke 12:6-7,15; Rom. 8:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made constant provision for Your church.
