Psalm 131

Listening to the radio this morning, I heard Nancy Leigh DeMoss expounding on Psalm 131:

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
.

I emphasize the second verse as the that was DeMoss’ key phrase. Today’s show “Revive My Heart” focused on quieting one’s heart. In this era of rushing, accomplishing, working, and nurturing when we worry about bills, goals, kids, jobs, homes. Few people I meet have quiet hearts.

I know this is an era I should work on.After all, I know God cares for me. I believe God has a plan for me that’s far better than any I can design so why do I get frantic or down?

I found another good exposition on this Psalm.
