 A measure of trials is necessary -newton


[b]A measure of trials is necessary[/b]

(John Newton's Letters)

A measure of trials is necessary for the exercise
and manifestation of your graces; to give you a more
convincing proof of the truth and sweetness of the
promises made to a time of affliction; to mortify the
body of sin; and to wean you more effectually from
the world.

Faith upholds a Christian under all trials, by assuring him
that every painful dispensation is under the direction of
his Lord; that chastisements are a token of His love; that
the season, measure, and continuance of his sufferings,
are appointed by Infinite Wisdom, and designed to work
for his everlasting good; and that grace and strength
shall be afforded him, according to his need.

This is great, I love this excerpt. Especially the above quote. As someone wrote, this knowledge (that everything that touches us is ordained by God) is "not just a cordial, but an elixir in the Christian life"! In a sense, no "bad things" can happen to us.
