Acquaint now yourself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come to you.
The study of God's nature in the page of revelation is oftentimes abused, so as to give a man not peace, but trouble. But we should be aware that this is not the necessary fruit, nay, that it never need be the consequence at all, of meditation on Gospel truth. Acquaint thyself with God. Thou knowest Him not aright by nature; thou art in need of diligent study, constant prayer, frequent meditation. Thy notions of God are far from being what they ought to be. Take pains to know Him as He is. To know that God made us, and at the same time to feel that we therefore owe to Him our own existence, this is to acquaint ourselves with God. To know of the gift of God's Son as a Saviour from sin, and to know of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. and Sanctifier, this is to acquaint ourselves with God. Then thou shalt be at peace with God and with thyself. And "good shall come unto thee." Both now and hereafter.
(C. Girdlestone, M. A.)
