Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 7-7-20

Psalm 131 (TPT) My Heart Is Meek
A song of the stairway, by King David
Lord, my heart is meek before you.
I don’t consider myself better than others.
I’m content to not pursue matters that are over my head—
such as your complex mysteries and wonders—
that I’m not yet ready to understand.
I am humbled and quieted in your presence.
Like a contented child who rests on its mother’s lap,
I’m your resting child and my soul is content in you.
O people of God, your time has come to quietly trust,
waiting upon the Lord now and forever.

The Lord has been teaching me off and on for some time about being a “resting child.” It is in a spiritual realm of rest that I can better understand God’s heart and wisdom; to receive revelation from the Spirit and to grow in meekness. I feel secure in this place with the Lord; I know God will take care of me and guide me well. He will do the same for you. Let’s not forget Jesus told his disciples the Kingdom of God belongs to those who come to him like children; otherwise, we cannot enter the Kingdom (Mark 10:13-16). So, today, think about that place of spiritual rest that belongs to the children of God; trust the Lord because he has everything under his control.

Prayer: Lord, I humble myself and come to rest in your care each day. Quiet my soul and spill your peace over me. Help me to enter deeper into the mystery of your amazing grace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
