Psalm 131:1-2 My heart is not proud, O Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I HAVE STILLED AND QUIETEN MY SOUL; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me.
Let me say here. I DO NOT HAVE A CLUE WHAT AWAITS ME TOMORROW….but that doesn’t bother me. You see, my family and I are in the process of preparing to move elsewhere. If anything, we ought to be up and tight trying to figure out how things will play out in the coming weeks and months. If anything, I ought to be pushing and shoving…and putting my agenda before God, asking that things should be as rosy and merry and yes, as smooth sailing as it would be possible. But no. The opposite has in fact, happened. Suddenly, even though I cannot tell why, I AM UNCONCERNED ABOUT THE DETAILS. I AM UNMOVED AT THE REPORT. Instead, MY HEART IS SOBER. I sleep like a baby; my day play out as if nothing is about to change in our lives; my family functions as normal as it has over the last five years.
And yes, my heart, OUR HEARTS ARE SOBER. We are steadfast because WE ARE ESTABLISHED IN HIM.
I don’t know what are the circumstances in your life. But God wants you to find REST in the finished work at the cross. God wants you to find PEACE in the promise of a future which is good and full of hope. God wants you to know LOVE which does not alter or change with the circumstances. God wants you to KNOW that He is A GOOD FATHER who has the best in mind for His BELOVED CHILDREN.
GOD WANTS YOUR HEART SOBER;
Matthew 11:28-30 ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will GIVE YOU REST. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am GENTLE and HUMBLE in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is EASY and my burden is LIGHT.”
So…as for now, my yoke is EASIER and my burden is LIGHTER…because I have found rest in Him….for MY NOW, and MY FUTURE…and beyond time, for MY ETERNITY.
COME. HE IS WAITING FOR YOU!!!!
