None ever sought Me in vain. I wait, wait with a hungry longing to be called upon; and I, who have already seen your hearts' needs before you cried upon Me, before perhaps you were conscious of those needs yourself, I am already preparing the answer. It is like a mother, who is setting aside suitable gifts for daughter's wedding, before Love even has come into the daughter's life. The anticipatory Love of God is a thing mortals seldom realize. Dwell on this thought. Dismiss from your minds the thought of a grudging God(1:19), who had to be petitioned with sighs and tears and much speaking before reluctantly He loosed the desired treasures. 1:17 Man thoughts of Me need revolutionizing. Try and see a mother preparing birthday or Christmas delights for her child- the while her mother-heart sings: "Will she not love that? how she will love this! (1:19), and anticipates the rapture of her child, her own heart full of the tenderest joy. where did the mother learn all this preparation-joy? From Me - a faint echo this of My preparation-joy. Try to see this as plans unfold of My preparing. It means much to Me to be understood, and the understanding of Me will bring great joy to you.
