Getting Different Amounts from the Bible
Ezekiel 37:4; Hebrews 4:12
I have sometimes seen more in a line of the Bible than I could well tell how to stand under, and yet at another time the whole Bible has been to me as dry as a stick; or rather, my heart has been so dead and dry unto it that I could not conceive the least dram of refreshment.

God’s Promises Require Faith
Psalm 27:14; Habakkuk 2:2–3; 2 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 11:1
There is no place for faith if we expect God to fulfill immediately what he promises. It is hence the trial of faith to acquiesce in God’s word, when its accomplishment does in no way appear.
