Outrunning The Providence of God

There are [those] whose designs lie after greatness, high places, esteem in the world,—to be somebody in their days; outrunning the providence and call of God to that end; and who make this their business and interest, without farther consideration. But we may say…their way is folly, though they that follow them should praise their sayings.

~John Owen

from a sermon entitled Of Walking Humbly With Godvolume 9 of Works, page 127
