QUIETNESS and REST

November 2, 2015

Monday

 

Psalm 131:2

 

Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother;
Like a weaned child is my soul within me

 

 

LESSON

 

David had stopped being self-assertive and restless. Rather than constantly seeking self-gratification, he now rested in his lot. The ability to rest and be quiet, rather than struggling for what we want, is a sign of maturity as well as humility.

 

David did not push himself forward, but suffered himself to be drawn forth out of seclusion, his soul, which is by nature restless and craving, is stilled; it does not long after earthly enjoyment and earthly good that God should give these to it, but it is satisfied in the fellowship of God, it finds full satisfaction in Him, it is satisfied in Him.

 

Memory Verse: Matthew 11:29
