Today’s Reading: 1 Kings 11:1‐12:19, Acts 9:1‐25, Psalm 131:1‐3, Proverbs 17:4‐5
O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me.
- Move away from – heart being lifted up, eyes raised too high, occupy with things to great and marvelous for me.
- Work on – calming and quieting my soul.
Application: I want to change my goal orientation. If I strive all of my life to attain something greater, I miss the boat. Today, I want to focus on calming and quieting my soul through resting in the arms of my Father.
What calms your soul?
