Acquaint Yourself With Him

There are people who come into our lives that we want to know better. Possibly because they have some knowledge or skill we have a curiosity about, possibly because they remind us of someone else we know and like or maybe because their presence, their friendship is encouraging and uplifting. We feel comfortable and confident around them. Today’s verse touches on that idea.

Job 22:21 “Acquaint now yourself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto you.”

This verse comes from the middle of Job. Job is in the midst of his valley, questioning his situation, looking for some explanation that makes sense. Chapter 22 is the monologue of his friend Eliphaz. This verse talks of becoming acquainted with GOD. Peace and good come to all who become of use to GOD. Acquaint in the Hebrew means just that; to become useful to someone or to be a servant to someone. GOD brings peace and good to those who have chosen to allow themselves to be used for His purposes. Trusting Him and following Him has blessings beyond measure. Praying that we all are blessed beyond belief! Mike
