Contents: 1. A beam of divine glory --
Wherein way is made to the text; the words thereof opened; the foundation of our intended discourse laid, and the principal matters to be considered in the prosecution of it hinted at --
Which contains a general proof of the unchangeableness of God --
Which shows wherein, in a peculiar manner, God is unchangeable --
Which gives an account why or whence it is that God is unchangeable --
Several propositions laid down for the obviating of objections, and the vindication of God's unchangeableness from all cavil and contradiction --
Several doctrinal corollaries or deductions from the consideration of God's unchangeableness --
Several grounds of humbling from the consideration of God's unchangeableness, such as our unlikeness to Him therein, our charging Him with change, and our living so little upon His unchangeableness --
God has a revenue of honor due to Him upon the account of His unchangeableness. We should give Him that honor. Several short and plain directions in order thereto --
God's unchangeableness should induce us to choose Him for our God and our portion, and to take up the rest and happiness of our souls in Him; with arguments to quicken thereunto --
We are to imitate God, and labor for a likeness to Him in His unchangeableness, by being more constant in that which is good; this, in some measure, is attainable in this world; it is near the life of heaven --
The unchangeableness of God a sweet spring of comfort to his people: several consolatory conclusions thence --
2. The soul's rest in God --
An introduction to the words; what that rest is which David calls on his soul to return unto; the sum of the words and our intention from them laid down in one general position --
What the soul's rest in God is, opened, and when the soul may be said to be at rest with him --
The great obligations the saints are under thus to live at rest in God. Several of these obligations insisted on us the first evidence of the truth or our proposition --
The truth asserted, further evidenced from the excellency of this frame of soul, the worth and excellency whereof is discovered in several particulars --
The truth particularly improved. The saints called upon to live thus at rest in God. Arguments urged to induce them so to do --
Several plain and proper directions to souls how to attain in this life a rest in God, with a conclusion of the whole matter.
Other Titles: Unchangeableness of God.
Soul's rest in God.
