“My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content”Psalm 131:1-2
Peace and good to all.
If my share my thoughts on the above passage from the Book of Psalm.
Generally, people wanted great things for themselves. Power, popularity, material wealth, we all wanted them and to some, they even wanted immortality. Except for immortality, I too have actually desired them all or at least thought of them to have, but that was before, when I was slumbering.
But now I have awoken from my spiritual sleep. And, I have submitted everything to Him who has calmed my heart. Jesus has calmed the wave and storm in my heart and in my head, He penetrated my soul. He gave me peace. I cannot ask for more. I am contented for I know I have Jesus and He is with me. Whenever I am weary, I call on Him. And, I worry no more.
There were times that out of curiosity I asked God as to what are His plans for me? But it was a query of humility, for I know that He has plans for all of us. God’s infinite thoughts is greater than man’s limited ability to comprehend them. Hence, the need to completely surrender to Him, to trust Him, to have faith in His superior wisdom and provision.
I know that there will be times when we would feel restless, anxious on what to happen to us tomorrow; of what this pandemic would bring to us and to our family. Or, because we are afflicted of certain illness, we are worried if we can still make another day; if God will continue to watch over us, if God will continue to provide for us, if God will continue to take care of us. The good news of the gospel my friends is to submit to the will of God. “Not my will Lord, but yours be done.” Trust Him, He will provide, He will take care of you, He will make you live longer, He will calm your restless heart.
