    Thoughts of peace - Here God gives them to understand,

    1. That his love was moved towards them.

    2. That he would perform his good word, his promises often repeated, to them.

    3. That for the fulfillment of these they must pray, seek, and search.

    4. That he would hearken, and they should find him; provided,

    5. They sought him with their whole heart, Jeremiah 29:10-13.
