~ For true conversion there must be not only a change of the way, but a
change of the mind. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so
are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Let those that are the called according to God's
purpose, comfort themselves, that whatever God has purposed, it shall
stand. Isaiah 14:24
Surely as I (God) have thought, so shall it
come to pass; as he had shaped and created it, and drew the form and
image in his own mind (Proverbs, wisdom was with him before the hills
and valleys were formed), or fixed and settled it there, so should it be
done in due time, as everything is that is determined by the Lord!
Nothing is casual, or comes by chance, but everything as it is purposed
of God; and that as everything comes to pass which he (our God, the most
High) has resolved, so every such resolution proceeds from thought, and
is the produce of the highest wisdom and prudence!
