‎"I much dislike these anxious cares (which as you say) almost consume you. It is not the greatness of your danger, but the greatness of your unbelief. Others were under greater danger. If it is great, He is great who orders it. Why afflict yourself? if the cause is bad, let us renounce it. If it is good why do we make Him a liar who bids us to be still? Are you able to do any good by such unprofitable cares? I beseech you (you who are in other things valiant), fight against yourself - your greatest enemy. You put weapons in Satan's hand."
From a letter written by Martin Luther

By John Flavel

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
