To any one who at all realizes the majesty and unapproachable glory of God on the one hand, and the ineffable tenderness and depth of His love on the other, there is something positively intoxicating in the thought. Who would ever fear, or doubt, or hesitate, or despair, if he [or she] were really and indeed intimately conscious to himself [herself] that the loving arms of Omnipotence are wound about him [her] all the day long, and that nothing in heaven or on earth can possibly approach to injure or molest him [her] without permission from that Divine Lover, whose love on the one hand is infinite, and whose power on the other hand is commensurate with His Love. To be fully sensible of all this is to be calm and happy, and to share in some measure in the felicity of the saints.
