Job 19:25

“There are many of us who do not often enjoy any ravishing ecstasies, but on the other hand, we generally maintain the even tenor of our way, simply hanging upon Christ, feeling that His promise is true, that His merits are sufficient, and that we are safe. Assurance is a jewel for worth but not for rarity. It is the common privilege of all the saints if they have but the Divine Grace to attain unto it. And this Grace, the Holy Spirit gives freely. Surely if Job in Arabia, in those dark misty ages when there was only the morning star, and not the sun — when they saw but little, when life and immortality had not been brought to light — if Job, before the coming and advent, still could say, ‘I know,’ you and I should not speak less positively!”

– Charles H. Spurgeon, from the sermon I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
