Quotes About Gracious

"Divine aids and supports are furnished us under our afflictions (Rom 8:26,27). . . . Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities (Rom 8:26). Not only does hope (a sure expectation of Gods making good His promises) support and cheer the suffering saint, leading him to patiently wait for deliverance from his afflictions, but the blessed Comforter has also been given to him in order to supply help to this very end. By His gracious aid, the believer is preserved from being totally submerged by his doubts and fears. By His renewing operations, the spark of faith is maintained, despite all the fierce winds of Satan which assail. By His mighty enabling, the sorely harassed and groaning Christian is kept from sinking into complete skepticism, abject despair, and infidelity. By His quickening power, hope is still kept alive, and the voice of prayer is still faintly heard." - Author: Arthur W. Pink
