What is the cause of all God’s purposes towards us?

‎”What is the cause of all God’s purposes towards us? Himself. There is no other cause.”

A habitual sight of Him

“What is it to have Christ dwell in the heart by faith?
It is to have Jesus Christ continually in one’s eye, a habitual sight of Him. I call it so because a man actually does not always think of Christ; but as a man does not look up to the sun continually, yet he sees the light of it.
So you should carry along and bear along in your eye the sight and knowledge of Christ, so that at least a presence of Him accompanies you, which faith makes.”
