“I am sure there is no more delightful doctrine to a Christian, than that of Christ’s absolute sovereignty.
I am glad there is no such thing as chance, that nothing is left to itself, but that Christ everywhere hath sway.
If I thought that there was a devil in hell that Christ did not govern, I should be afraid that devil would destroy me, If I thought there was a circumstance on earth, which Christ did not over-rule, I should fear that that circumstance would ruin me.
Nay, if there were an angel in heaven that was not one of Jahweh’s subjects, I should tremble even at him. But since Christ is King of kings, and I am his poor brother, one whom he loves, I give all my cares to him, for he careth for me; and leaning on his breast, my soul hath full repose, confidence, and security.”
