A very great attainment

(William Plumer, "Vital Godliness: A Treatise on Experimental and Practical Piety" 1864)

It is a very great attainment to lie passive in God's hands, and know no will but His.

"It is the LORD. Let Him do what seems good to Him." 1 Samuel 3:18

"Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I shall return there. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." Job 1:21

"May the Lord's will be done." Acts 21:14

"Father, if You are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from Me. Nevertheless, I want Your will to be done, not Mine!" Luke 22:42
