If we really had His vision, that which looks like trimming and reduction is His way of enlargement, butspiritual and heavenly enlargement…. God in sovereignty will run the risk of shattering, or allow the shattering, of so much that He has used of scaffolding or framework in order to realize the fuller purpose. – T. Austin-Sparks

I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart. Psalm 119:32

How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, “He brought me forth also in a large place” (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there. – Madame Guyon
