No Rest In The Height of Sin

God by his providence seldom gives an absolute, universal security unto men in their height of sin, and oppression, and sensuality, and lusts; but he will secretly put them in fear where no fear is: and though there be nothing seen that should cause them to have any fear, they shall act like men at their wits’ end with fear.

~John Owen

from a sermon entitled The Wisdom of Making The Lord Our Refuge, preached on February 27, 1669; volume 16 of Works, page 434
