296 No Heart Is Better Than God’s
1 Having chosen to love God, I’ll submit to any trial He subjects me to. Despite feeling a bit sad, I give no word of complaint. With corrupt disposition, man deserves judgment and chastisement. God’s word is the truth; I must not misconstrue His will. In self-reflection, I often find too much impurity; if I do not strive, I cannot be perfected. Though today’s hardships are many, it is an honor to enjoy God’s love. Through hardship, I learn submission. No heart is better than God’s.
2 With God day and night, I recognize how lovable He is. Through the revelations and judgment of His words, I see the truth of my corruption. Through God’s scrutiny, I am revealed to be very rebellious. I open my heart for communion, and gain a clear understanding of the truth. I tremble at the thought of offending God’s disposition; I warn myself not to rebel again and bring Him more pain. Though I choose to love God, my love is adulterated with my own ideas. I must strive to attain a spirit like Peter’s. No matter how God receives my love, my only wish is to satisfy Him. Though today’s hardships are many, it is an honor to enjoy God’s love. Through hardship, I learn submission. No heart is better than God’s.
