    Hugh Binning, Works, p. 425:

    The believer hath likewise peace with all the creatures, which the world hath not, and even in this he is a privileged man. He is in league with the stones of the field, and in peace in his tabernacle, Job 5:23. All things are his, because he is Christ’s, and all are Christ’s, who is the possessor of heaven and earth, at least the righteous heir of both, 1 Cor. 3:21. The unbeliever hath no right to the creature; though there be a cessation for a time between them and him, yet that is no peace, for they will at length be armed against him. They are witnesses already against him, and groan to God for the corruption that man’s sin hath subjected them unto. His table is, it may be, full, yet it is a snare unto him; he getteth ease and quietness outwardly: nay, but it slayeth the fool and destroyeth him. But the godly man is at peace, through Christ’s blood, with all crosses and comforts; the sting and enmity of all evils is taken away by Christ.
