Robert Traill (Sermons from 1 Peter 1:1-4), Works 4:114:

Our Lord gives the crown of glory, at last, upon these terms: Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you before the foundation of the world, Matt. 25:34. The foundations of the world were laid long ere you came into it, and you were a long while in the world before ye knew any thing of Jesus Christ and the grace of God; “but now,” saith our Lord, “ye are come to possess all that eternal love that I designed for you.” The two greatest grounds upon which we certainly conclude, that the glory to be revealed is exceeding great, are, the eternal purpose of love in the heart of God, and the infinite price of the blood of the Son of God. It must be a great glory that God had so many thoughts about, and it must be a great glory that the Son of God paid so great a price for. There is nothing proves so plainly the love that God had in his heart for his people, and the infinite value of the blood of Christ, as a perceiving of that glory that we partake of by this purpose and by this purchase.

Such an eternal love He had for us, before He created the physical good, is a spiritual blessing to cherished indeed.
