Humble Before Him

What do you say when you come before the Lord?  

Do you begin with your heart? Laying it open before the One Who fashioned it. Who knows its every beat, and thought?

A Song of Ascents of David. LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child. Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

psalm 131:1-3

Do you confess the desire that grows there? The pride that causes the eyes to look toward things they should not seek?

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? (Jer 17:9)

Have you humbled yourself before Him? Calmed the tumultuous sea of self-will and learned contentment at His feet?

Do you take comfort in the divine grace He offers?

And hope in the salvation of mankind?
