The Hand Of God

“O sons of Israel, return to the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that He may return to those of you who escaped and are left from (C)the hand of the kings of Assyria.

7"(D)Do not be like your fathers and your brothers, who were unfaithful to the LORD God of their fathers, so that (E)He made them a horror, as you see.

8"Now do not (F)stiffen your neck like your fathers, but yield to the LORD and enter His sanctuary which He has consecrated forever, and serve the LORD your God, (G)that His burning anger may turn away from you.

9"For (H)if you return to the LORD, your brothers and your sons will find compassion before those who led them captive and will return to this land (I)For the LORD your God is gracious and compassionate, and will not turn His face away from you if you return to Him."

0So the couriers passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh, and as far as Zebulun, but (J)they laughed them to scorn and mocked them.

11Nevertheless (K)some men of Asher, Manasseh and Zebulun humbled themselves and came to Jerusalem.

12The (L)hand of God was also on Judah to give them one heart to do what the king and the princes commanded by the word of the LORD. 2 Chronicles 30:6-12

How can we humble our self without the hand of God working in us? How can we return to Him without His hand guiding us?
