Now what more can I say to stir up your hearts to wait on divine providence? The promises fill up providence for those who wait. They are breasts full of goodness, or a spring full of water for waiting souls to derive abundant mercy through providence. A good Christian is in such a happy condition! Either he has enough in hand, or else if the good be delayed, it lies sure for him in the promises. Isaiah 64:4 says, "For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him." "Blessed are all they that wait for him" (Isa. 30:18).
