Rutherford: rejoice in God alone

Thursday, August 16, 2018
    Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
    —Exodus 34:14 (NIV)
    Think [it] not hard if ye get not your will, nor your delights in this life; God will have you to rejoice in nothing but himself.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, Feb 1, 1630, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also Ex. 34:14; Deut. 5:7; Ps. 43:4; Rom. 7:21; Rev. 4:10-11; 22:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have driven all the other gods of my life away.
