John G. Paton - on Following God's Will

"The opposition was so strong from nearly all, and many of them warm Christian friends, that I was sorely tempted to question whether I was carrying out the Divine will, or only some headstrong wish of my own. This also caused me much anxiety, and drove me close to God in prayer."

- from John G. Paton, Missionary to the New Hebrides: An Autobiography Edited by His Brother quoted in Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ by John Piper, page 59
