Inconceivable Pleasure

“There is nothing in God can displease a soul that desires to please Him; when we are in darkness, He is a light to scatter it; when we are in want, He hath riches to relieve us; when we are in spiritual death, He is a Prince of life to deliver us; when we are defiled, He is holiness to purify us; it is in vain to fix our hearts anywhere but on Him, in the desire of Whom there is a delight, and in the enjoyment of Whom there is an inconceivable pleasure”.

-Stephen Charnock, Works, vol 2, P.346
