“We come to a God sitting upon a throne of grace” by Stephen Charnock

“Little comfort can be sucked from a ‘perhaps.’

But when we come to seek covenant mercies, God’s faithfulness to His covenant puts mercy past a ‘perhaps.’

We come to a God sitting upon a throne of grace, upon Mount Zion, not upon Mount Sinai.

We come to a God that desires our presence, more than we desire His assistance.”

–Stephen Charnock, “Delight in Prayer,” The Works of Stephen Charnock, Vol. 5 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1681/2010), 5: 376.
