God does not act unsuitably to the rational powers and faculties he has given, when he clothes his word with omnipotence, makes it the power of God unto salvtion, and attends it with an unfrustrable operation upon the understanding, will, and affections; since no coactive force or violence is offered to them, the understanding is wonderfully enlightened, the will is sweetly drawn, and the affections delightully engaged and moved, without any injury, yea with an advantage, to these natural faculties. (John Gill, The Cause of God and Truth, p. 180)
