The greater your sins are, the more you stand in need of a Saviour. The greater your burden is, the more you stand in need of one to help to bear it. The deeper the wound is, the more need there is of the surgeon; the more dangerous the disease is, the more need there is of the physician. [PRASD]

Your strength to stand and overcome must not be expected from graces received, but from the fresh and renewed influences of heaven. You must lean more upon Christ than upon your duties; you must lean more upon Christ than upon your spiritual tastes and discoveries: you must lean more upon Christ than upon your graces, or else Satan will lead you into captivity.

Our whole life is beset with temptations. Satan watches all opportunities to break our peace, to wound our consciences, to lessen our comforts, to impair our graces, to slur our evidences, and to damp our assurances. Oh! What need then have we to be always upon our watch-tower, lest we be surprised by this subtle serpent.  Watchfulness includes a waking, a rousing up of the soul. It is a continual, careful observing of our hearts and ways, in all the turnings of our lives, that we still keep close to God and his Word. [PRASD]

Will you be thankful for the escaping the snares that men spread for your lives or estates, and will you not be much more thankful for escaping those snares that Satan hath laid for your precious souls? (Ps. 71:14).PRAS [D]

It is most that sin and grace were never born together, neither shall sin and grace die together; yet while a believer breathes in this world, they must live together, they must keep house together. [PRASD]

The more the soul is filled with the fullness of God and enriched with spiritual and heavenly things, the less room there is in that soul for vain thoughts. [PRASD]

There is nothing that will contribute so much to the keeping out of vain thoughts, as to look upon God as an omniscient God, an omnipotent God, a God full of all glorious perfections, and God whose majesty, purity, and glory will not suffer him to behold the least iniquity. [PRASD]
