“Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace.” (Job 22: 21)
Don’t we all seek peace in our lives and in our very being? While it may seem reliant on circumstances or on other people’s presence (or absence), true peace is available even when the outward conditions may feel noisy and chaotic.
We can take the instructions in this verse to heart and get acquainted with God. We can draw closer to Him, get to know Him better with His qualities of pure Love and infinite Life. We can come to recognize that there is one Mind in control and this Mind is wise, almighty, and kind. Getting acquainted with God is about giving up the preoccupation with persons and self, and simply, humbly, letting God do the talking. We can listen for instruction, be open to love without qualification, and just be with our Father-Mother.
In some other translations of this verse, “acquainting” oneself is rendered as surrendering, agreeing, yielding to God. It is a sweet letting go, a release to God and an agreement that He is All, He is good, and we are safe.
This brings us a sense of peace that reveals prosperity, good at hand. We give up the willful control and give ourselves willingly to God—to His purpose, and His active, intelligent, grace.
