Thomas Watson on Affliction

Posted by Antoinette Petersen | Labels: , , | Posted On Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 8:00 AM

"It is one heart-quieting consideration in all the afflictions that befalls us, that God has a special hand in them: "The Almighty hath afflicted me."  Instruments can no more stir till God gives them a commission, than the axe can cut of itself without a hand.  Job eyed God in his affliction: therefore, as Augustine observes, he does not say "The Lord gave, and the devil took away," but "The Lord hath taken away."
