Every Secret Prayer Adds To His Torment - Thomas Brooks

Now What Am I to Do - Jeremiah Burroughs

Now what am I to do? What can I think now are those duties that God requires of me in the circumstances that he has now put me into?  Let me exert my strength to perform the duties of my present circumstances. Others spend their thoughts on things that disturb and disquiet them, and so they grow more and more discontented. Let me spend my thoughts in thinking what my duty is, what is the duty of my present circumstances which I am in?

The Spirit Is Given Not To - Matthew Henry

Though Peter was filled with the Holy Ghost and spoke with tongues as the Spirit gave him utterance, yet he did not set aside the scriptures nor think himself above them. Much of his discourse is quotation out of the Old Testament, to which he appeals and with which he proves what he says.(Acts 2:14-41) The Spirit is given not to supersede the scriptures, but to enable us to understand and apply the scriptures.
