“God is clothed,” says Job, “with awesome majesty” (Job 37:22).
Such were the thoughts of men of old. When they saw God, they thought they would die. The Scriptures abound in these self-abasing considerations. Men of the earth are compared to “grasshoppers,” to “vanity,” and “dust on the scales,” in respect to God (Isaiah 40:12-25).
Consider these things often to abase the pride of your heart and to keep your soul humble within you. Such a frame of heart will be a great advantage in conquering the deceitfulness of sin. Think often of the greatness of God.
