Sovereign Will and Pleasure of God

“The things we stand in need of are grace and mercy; the principle from whence they flow, and are bestowed, is the sovereign will and pleasure of God. God refers the dispensation of all grace and mercy unto his own sovereign will and pleasure. …Whatever we stand in need of, –mercy, life, salvation, –God is able to give it: Whatsoever he will do, he can do. …The very power of God—that he is able to do whatever he pleases—is a foundation for faith to act upon and relieve itself by.” –John Owen “Works of John Owen” Vol. 9, p. 251

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
