Oh my earthly friends, in your trial and sufferings, in your longings and misery, I beseech you to wait upon the Lord; to wait for him for He will come to you and restore you. His restoration will come upon you as that of the coming of a thief in the night; suddenly it will appear and take away your sorrows and guilt. He will suddenly fill you with joy inexpressible and full of glory. Is your soul sad then let it be sad and conjure not for yourself false excitements but wait for the appearing of your saviour who bestows upon the soul of His saints lasting and true enjoyments. Do not be quick to fill your soul upon the broken cisterns of this world to satisfy your thirst for pleasure but wait and come to the fountain of God where the water flows and satisfies your innermost being. Did God not say that at His right hand there is pleasure forever more? Then why oh brother do you seek pleasure elsewhere? for who sits at the right hand of God? It is Jesus, and in him is infinite pleasure and delight forevermore.
Oh Lord my excellent God, How wonderful you are to me!
