Grace will act like itself at last, and they that trust in the Lord shall never be ashamed. Though God veil His grace, and give us mercies on the point of His sword, yet, when we pass through the fire and the water. He will abide with us; but they are good eyes to see the love of God when they are compassed with fire and water; yet it is there; and a gracious soul has some discerning of this promise in the midst of them: “You shall not perish, because I will be with you.” So how boldly may a saint enter into these fires, and walk through the valley of the shadow of death, and fear no evil! God cannot hide His face. His love, from such a faith. A tried faith that will not let God go is a precious failh. God will certainly turn back on such a soul, and manifest His love at last in a glorious manner.
