Love to God disposes us meekly to bear injuries from others, because it sets us very much above the injuries of men. … It sets above the reach of injuries from others, because nothing can ever really hurt those that are the true friends of God. Their life is hid with Christ in God; and he, as their protector and friend, will carry them on high as on the wings of eagles ; and all things shall work together for their good (Rom. 8:28); and none shall be permitted really to harm them, while they are followers of that which is good (1 Pet. 3:13).
