In need of some encouragement?

John Owen has some encouraging words:

But there is no more sacred truth than this, that where Christ is present with believers,-where he is not withdrawn for a season from them, where they live in the view of his glory by faith as it is proposed unto them in the Gospel,-he will give unto them, at his own seasons, such intimations of his love, such supplies of his Spirit, such holy joys and rejoicings, such repose of soul in assurance, as shall refresh their souls, fill them with joy, satisfy them with spiritual delight, and quicken them unto all acts of holy communion with himself (Works of John Owen, volume 1, p. 399).
