(First,) God is an infinite Ocean of Sweetness, Perfection, and Glory; he has all Good and all Perfection in Him, as in its Fountain, Fulness, and Purity; as all the Lines in the Circumference do meet, and are united in the Center; so all Excellencies and Perfections do meet, and are united in God; and as God has all Excellencies and Perfections in him, so (Secondly) he perfectly understands his own infinite Perfections, contemplates them, and has an infinite delight, solace, and satisfaction in them; he is infinitely pleased and at rest in himself, and in the vision and fruition of his own Perfections, and this is his blessedness; hence he tells us, that he is God All-sufficient; that is to say, for and to himself, as well as for and to his people, Gen. 17.1. I am God All-sufficient, I am my own blessedness; and Abraham, I am thy blessedness, and I have enough for both.

For the reference, see Edward Pearse on God’s infinite satisfaction in himself.
