I Will Be Merciful to Whom I Will

“…and indeed all his mercies whatsoever, they flow and proceed wholly from himself, having no motive but from what is in himself, either as to the persons to whom, or as to the things and mercies bestowed. For although to be merciful is his nature, yet the dispensation or giving forth of mercy is from his will; and that which is his will is guided by is the good pleasure of his will, Eph.1:5, and according as he is pleased to ‘purpose within himself, verse 9, you may observe is this, ‘I will be merciful to whom I will be merciful.’ ”  –Thomas Goodwin “Works of…” Vol. 8

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.
