[b]Communion with God[/b](Thomas Brooks, "Hypocrites Detected, Anatomized, Impeached, Arraigned and Condemned" 1650)Communion with God is . . . the life of all your graces; the sweetener of all providences and mercies; the strengthener of your hearts and hands; the soul of your comforts; the crown of your souls. Nothing can compare with communion with God-- to fence you against temptations, to sweeten all afflictions, and to make you own God, and stand for God, and cleave to God--in the face of all troubles and oppositions. Communion with God makes bitter things--sweet; and massive things--light. A man high in communion with God, is a man too big for temptations to conquer--or troubles to subdue! Those who have but little communion with God, are usually as soon conquered as tempted--as soon vanquished as assaulted.
