The Sweeter Are Our Reliefs – John Flavel

by | January 8, 2016

The more prayers and searchings of heart come between our needs and supplies, our afflictions and reliefs, the sweeter are our reliefs and supplies thereby made to us. “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us; this is the Lord, we have waited for him, we will rejoice and be glad in his salvation” (Isaiah 25:9).

– John Flavel –
from The Mystery of Providence, 1678
