“There is fullness of sympathy in our God. The river that flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb, did you ever hear of it drying up? “The “Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.” The Son, the “Consolation of Israel,” He that was sent to comfort all that mourn; the Holy Spirit “the Comforter,” leading us to Consolation of Israel and the Father of mercies. We are at the deep, deep well of love. The weariest head and the sorest heart may lean on the bosom on which the beloved disciple leaned, and find indescribable relief and indescribable sympathy, for He will whisper all the time, “All things work together for good to them that love God,” “For thought He cause grief, yet will He have compassion according to the multitude of His mercies.”
