"Reveal Thyself to Me!"

"Oh, God! if there be a God, reveal Thyself to me!" was the cry of a would-be infidel. He had written a book to try to convince a friend of his folly in believing in Christianity. Before sending it to press he sat down to read it again. Having read it, he asked himself: "Were I a believer in Christ, would such arguments upset my faith? No, they would not." Throwing himself on his knees, he cried to God: "Oh God! if there be a God, reveal Thyself to me!"
God heard; God answered; and he rose from his knees a changed man. The Savior-God, in His grace, met him and blessed him in the knowledge of Himself. Instead of publishing his book he went out into the world to tell others of the faith he had once sought to destroy. "And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent." John 17:33And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:3).
Have you made acquaintance with God? Are you at peace? "Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee." Job 22:2121Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. (Job 22:21).
