Brooks showed that God is a:
Needful, and necessary
Pure and universal
Glorious, happy, and blessed
Safe and secure
Indefinite, never-failing, everlasting
When I read this book back in the 90s, I saw not only that I should be satisfied in God, but that I could be satisfied in God! One paragraph of his book struck me with tremendous force and gave me incredible joy. Here it is.
“Certainly, if there be enough in God to satisfy the spirits of just men made perfect, whose capacities are far greater than ours; and if there be enough in God to satisfy the angels, whose capacities are far above theirs; if there be enough in God to satisfy Jesus Christ, whose capacity is unconceivable and unexpressable; yea, if there be enough in God to satisfy himself, then certainly there must needs be in God enough to satisfy the souls of His people. If all fullness, and all goodness, and infiniteness will satisfy the soul, then God will. There is nothing beyond God imaginable; and therefore the soul that enjoys him, cannot but be satisfied with him. God is a portion beyond all imagination, all expectation, all apprehension, and all comparison; and therefore he that hath him cannot but sit down and say, I have enough.”
