6. Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace;
Thereby good shall come unto thee. JOB 22:31
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain;
God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
That which I see not, teach thou me: if I have
Done iniquity, I will do no more. JOB 34:32.
7. Thus saith the high and lofty One that
inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy:
I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also
That is of a contrite and humble spirit, to
Revive the heart of the contrite ones. ISA. 57:15.
A broken heart, my God, my King,
Is all the sacrifice I bring;
The God of Grace will ne’er despise
A broken heart for sacrifice.
Be clothed with humility. 1PET.5:5.
8. God resisteth the proud, and give the
Grace to the humble. 1PET. 5:6.
As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
Fears to stir a step alone:
Let me thus with thee abide,
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty
Hand of God, that he may exult you in due
Time. 1 PET. 5:6.
