The Power of Failing (Jean Nicholas Grou Quote)

When in His mercy God leads a soul in the higher paths of sanctification, He begins by stripping it of all self-confidence, and to this end He allows our own schemes to fail, our judgment to mislead us. We grope and totter and make

countless mistakes until we learn to mistrust ourselves and

to put all our confidence in Him.

–Jean Nicholas Grou
