Passage: Psalm 130:4

Peace with God

…there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared

(PSALM 130:4)

Doubtings, fears, temptations, if not ordinarily prevailing, are consistent with gospel assurance. Though the devil’s power be limited in reference unto the saints, yet his hands are not tied; though he cannot prevail against them, yet he can assault them. And although there be not “an evil heart of unbelief” in believers, yet there will still be unbelief in their hearts. Such an evidence, conviction, and persuasion of acceptance with God as are exclusive of all contrary reasonings, that suffer the soul to hear nothing of objections, that free and quiet it from all assaults, are neither mentioned in the Scripture, nor consistent with that state wherein we walk before God, nor possible on the account of Satan’s will and ability to tempt, or of our own remaining unbelief. Assurance encourageth us in our combat; [however] it delivereth us not from it. We may have peace with God when we have none from the assaults of Satan.
