The Voice of the Son of God
by George Whitefield
The Voice of the Son of God

    God is a sovereign agent; his sacred Spirit bloweth when and where it listeth; “he will have mercy on whom he will have mercy.” Saul is taken, but, as far as we know to the contrary, his fellow-travelers are left to perish in their sins. They heard a voice, a confused noise, but not the articulate voice of him that spake to Saul, and therefore remained unconverted. Thus it is now under the word preached: many, like Saul’s companions, are sometimes so struck with the outgoings of God appearing in the sanctuary, that they even stand speechless; they hear the preacher’s voice, but not the voice of the Son of God, who, perhaps, at the same time is speaking effectually to many other hearts; this I have known often; and what shall we say to these things?

    O the depth of the sovereignty of God! It is past finding out. Lord, I desire to adore what I cannot comprehend. “Even so, Father, for so it seemeth good in thy sight!”

George Whitefield (27 December 1714 — 30 September 1770), was an Anglican cleric and evangelist who was one of the founders of Methodism and the evangelical movement.
