"When a storm rises, immediately run and awaken your sleeping faith. Knock at its door. Do your work, O faith! Consider this medicine for your faith to drink in comfort: not the slightest trouble befalls you without the overruling eye and hand of God. He is not only our wise God, but a tender Father, He knows what you are made of and measures out exactly every cross unto us as a chemist measures grains of medicine."
(Samuel Ward, Sermons, pp. 33-36)
