ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Calvin on Assurance:: Westminster Seminary California

Good works are not the basis of assurance. Muller misunderstands Calvin.  Calvin never associated assurance with works even after conversion.  After conversion there are good works to be sure but good works can never give assurance precisely because they are always imperfect and fall short of God's glory.  (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8-9; Psalm 143:2).
