Even a momentary glance toward iniquity while it still remains at the farthest distance is not possible for God. His holiness cannot abide iniquity. — Robertson

We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be. ― CS Lewis

It is “that faith which strips us of all arrogance, and leads us naked and needy to God, that we may seek salvation from him alone, which would otherwise be far removed from us. — Calvin

God has charged Himself with full responsibility for our eternal happiness and stands ready to take over the management of our lives the moment we turn in faith to him. — Tozer

The mystery of why God has ordained the evils he has is as deep as the mystery of the evils in our hearts. And just as only God can plumb the depths of our hearts, so only God knows how the hurts we do to each other and to ourselves figure into his loving cure of us who shelter ourselves under the blood and righteousness of his Son. It is not always our place to attempt to give an answer to those who are questioning God’s goodness because of the evils that others have done to them or that they have done to themselves; sometimes we should just stand silently by their sides. Moreover, we will not always, right now, have these answers for ourselves. But in glory the answers will be clear, when we will see Jesus face to face. Then we will see that God has indeed done all that he pleased and has done it all perfectly, both for his glory and our good, for in the light of Jesus’ countenance—in that “light of life”— we will see that through our sufferings our loving Father has been con- forming us to the likeness of his Son. As David said, “Weeping may last for the night, but joy is coming in the morning” (Ps. 30:5). — Mark Talbot
