A few quotes from Thomas Watson (taken from Heaven Taken By Storm):
“The reason so many have been tricked into error is because they either did not know, or did not love, the truth.”
“Those who fly from the Word as a guide shall be forced to submit to it as a judge.”
“Those who slight God speaking in His Word shall hear Him speaking in His wrath.”
And now from Charles Spurgeon:
“The more prominent you are in Christ’s service, the more certain are you to be the butt of calumny. I have long ago said farewell to my character. I lost it in the earlier days of my ministry by being a little more zealous than suited a slumbering age. And I have never been able to regain it except in the sight of Him who judges all the earth, and in the hearts of those who love me for my work’s sake.”
And of course John Bunyan:
“In my preaching I was really in pain to bring forth children to God. I was not satisfied unless some fruit did appear in my work. If I were fruitless, it mattered not who commended me, but if I were fruitful, I cared not who condemned.”
And Best Of All from Psalm 31:20, “Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.”

Amen! Our hope is in the Lord!
Here, my soul is content, in the counsel of the Word of God and in those who speak godly wisdom.
Thanks for these quotes Nancy!
Psalm 35 spoke great comfort to me recently when we were under attack. I slept in peace behind the shield of the Lord, born by the Lord himself, buttressed with the shield of faith that His presence and shield were truly there. I realized I was vulnerable only to those that could make it through the shield of Yahweh, Yahweh Himself holding it, and the shield of my faith, a gift of His grace. May your sleep be sweetened by His promises.
I remember John Piper’s comments on your husband when commenting on the controversy stirred up by the Federal Vision a few years ago. He said that he is very smart. He also has a godly heritage and has lived a life in the light by God’s grace; he is saturated in the Word, and he has taken his mind and learning and utilized them for their rightful purpose — worship. His combination of gifts makes him the object of envy for those who cannot hear the Spirit of God speaking through him, yet as he draws fire approaching the enemy camp, he brings glory to God by revealing their strongholds. Take courage. The day of victory draws near.
