 It is faith alone that can enable a man to walk up and down before an Almighty One. Unbelief will ever be thrusting in something of self, something of circumstances, second causes, and the like, and thus the soul is robbed of the joy and peace, the calm elevation, and holy independence, which flow from leaning upon the arm of One who can do everything. (Genesis 17 by C.H. Mackintosh)
 When Abraham was called upon to be “perfect,” it did not mean perfect in himself; for this he never was, and never could be. It simply, meant that he should be perfect as regards the object before his heart. (Genesis 17 by C.H. Mackintosh)
 To walk thus, implies our having nothing whatever before our hearts save God Himself. If I am founding my expectation upon men and things, I am not walking before God, but before men and things. (Genesis 17 by C.H. Mackintosh)
 Unless we can find some circumstance too big or too little for “the Almighty God,” we have no proper base on which to found a single anxious thought. (Genesis 17 by C.H. Mackintosh)
