Unbelief will not hinder God’s work

Unbelievers may deride every attempt to turn sinners from the errors of their way; and even believers, while viewing things through sensible mediums, may discover insurmountable difficulties. The people will not believe us, nor hearken to our voice: the prejudices of men are almost insuperable in our native country; and if we go abroad they are worse: these casts, this voluptuousness, this savage ferocity, this treachery of character….How can we hope to overcome such obstacles as these?’ But all this is only a repetition of the objections of the all unbelieving Israelites: The people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are great, and walled up to heaven: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there! If we can believe….all things are possible to him that believeth.

Past instances of mercy furnished the church with matter of prayer: Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord! Awake as in the ancient days, in the generations of old? Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? And why should we not apply the past operations of grace to a similar purpose? That arm is not grown weary which subdued Jewish malignity in the days of pentecost, and overturned Heathen idolatry by the doctrine of the cross.

Rev. Andrew Fuller-God’s Approbation of our Labours Necessary to the Hope of Success-Preached
