Divine All-Sufficiency

This is a quote taken from David Brainerd's journal when he served as a missionary to Native Americans back in the day. He makes a great observation about his preaching to them that would be wise for us to consider today:

"The divine all-sufficiency must also necessarily be mentioned, in order to prevent their imagining that God was unhappy while alone, before the formation of His creatures” (Second Appendix to Mr. Brainerd’s Journal, in the Works of Jonathan Edwards, 2).
