“But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.” Psalm 131:2.
Is that you?
It’s certainly not me!
But it is the way the Godly life is supposed to be.
If it is, why is it so elusive?
The circumstances of life are unpredictable. I don’t know what will happen next. Therefore, apart from God, I reflect my uncertainty. I get excited. I get loud.
When I put my ENTIRE trust in God, I can live the Godly life the way I’m supposed to.
God truly is in charge. There is a happy ending. Note I am not now living in the “ending” part of life unless He suddenly returns. I am on life’s journey in a fallen world.
I can be certain that God is with me in all circumstances. My wife and I are still trying to replace our car that was totaled in January. There has been nothing quick about the process, but we are trusting God for help.
My behavior should be described as “calm” and “quiet.” I will betray the reality of my relationship to God if those two don’t describe me.
Conclusion: Am I calm and quiet because of Who God is?
