The Book of Privy Counseling - Be not afraid of the sudden terror nor of the power of the wicked … Here the wise man says: “Do not be overcome with anxious dread if the evil one comes (as he will) with sudden fierceness, knocking and hammering on the walls of your house; or if he should stir some of his mighty agents to rise suddenly and attack you without warning.” Let us be clear about this: the fiend must be taken into account. Anyone beginning this work (I do not care who he is) is liable to feel, smell, taste, or hear some surprising effects concocted by this enemy in one or other of his senses. So do not be astonished if it happens. There is nothing he will not try in order to drag you down from the heights of such valuable work. And so I tell you, watch over your heart in the day of suffering, trusting with joyful confidence in our Lord’s love. For the Lord is at your side and will keep your foot so that you be not taken. Yes, he will be close by your side ready to help you. He will keep your foot mythoughts, thoughtsofgod, thoughts of God, David Reese
