He Magnifies His Power

“The flies, caterpillars locusts, stars in their courses, all come at his call. Hereby he magnifies his power, that can do such great things by weak means. …And by opening the eyes of the blind, and quickening the dead, by such weak poor instruments as men are, his strength is exceedingly exalted.  …God does not use preachers because they help him in the conversion of souls; but because it is his pleasure and he turns it to his honor  1 Cor 1:21; 2 Cor. 4:7; therefore it is often seen that ministers of the largest gifts, of the greatest grace, are not often the most successful in their labours; because God would have us know, that it is not the parts or piety of the preacher, but his grace and Spirit that does the work; they are nothing, he is all in all.”  –George Swinnock “Works of…” Vol. 4, p. 444

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.
