“Let us simply depend upon Him and do our little best” by John Newton

“The Lord’s thoughts are not like ours: in His love and in His ways there are heights which we cannot reach, depths which we cannot fathom, lengths and breadths beyond the range of our feeble sight.

Let us then simply depend upon Him, and do our little best, leaving the event in His hand.”

–John Newton, The Works of John NewtonVolume 2 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1988), 2: 173.
