199 As I Wake in a Haze
1 I see the Word appears in the flesh and God has made anew heaven and earth, bringing to an end six millennia of hardship and restlessness. God incarnate expresses the truth, bringing light to mankind. God working to perfect man is the opportunity of a lifetime, I am so very fortunate. His word reveals, judges, chastises and exposes man’s corrupt disposition. I finally know that man has lost their conscience due to Satan’s corruption. Sanctimonious, speaking glibly of morality, when in fact they long ago lost humanity. Scheming and fighting against each other for fame and gain, they live in sin.
2 Man’s sinister heart is too corrupt to lay eyes upon. Willfully corrupting and defiling themselves, they have no self-love at all. Where can they find their last shred of integrity and dignity? Man’s heart is too crooked and deceitful, and man is unworthy to come before God. With a perturbed heart, and with fear and grief, I surrender my whole being before Him. I sigh as only now do I know how difficult it is to be human. I am too corrupted and cannot be saved without undergoing judgment and purification. I wake in a haze, too ashamed to look upon God’s face. Enlightened by judgment, all at once I know how to be a person. The truth and life have not come easily, it is all God’s kindness. Knowing God’s loveliness has roused my love for Him even more. May I suffer refinement and be cleansed so I can truly love and satisfy God.
