Reformed Covenanter

It is God that we have to deal withal in Ordinances, that sheds a glory, casts a Majesty, and puts an efficacy into all the Ordinances we have to deal withal: It is he who makes the Promises of the Word rocks of stay and support, that makes the commands of the Word full of authority, that makes the threatenings of the Word exceeding terrible[.]

It is he that we have to deal withal, that makes a little handful of water, a little bit of bread, and sup of wine, exceeding glorious and efficacious. What empty, what poor, what contemptible things would these be (and are to unbelieving men) if we had not to do with God in them? It is this God we have to do withal, that casts a Majesty upon, and puts an efficacy into every Ordinance.

For the reference, see Samuel Bolton: God’s majesty adds efficacy to his ordinances.
