Hope in the Lord



Lord, my heart is not haughty,
Nor my eyes lofty.
Neither do I concern myself with great matters,
Nor with things too profound for me.

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

O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

—Psalm 131


Who alone knows my heart but the Holy Spirit? I have peace when I humble myself and trust Him. I don’t concern myself with things that I might not understand with my natural mind. I trust His Word in my heart. I trust Jesus. I trust the Holy Spirit to reveal His heart to me. 


His peace calms and quiets my soul. I am still and know He is my God. I rest in His peace. I am like a weaned child confidently trusting in my Jesus who began His good work in me. It is not my work. It is His work. I am His workmanship. Like a weaned child, is my soul within me. I place my hope in Jesus, the author and the finisher of my faith. I praise Him for renewing me in the spirit of my mind with His truth. I put on the new person He has created me to be in true righteousness and holiness. I desire His Word to conform me to His truth. I never wish to be as Philip—to be with Him so long and yet not to have known Him. I pray to see, hear, and know Jesus in my heart.


I wait for the Lord. My soul waits in peace. I place my hope in His Word from this time forth and forever. He will be exalted above me. He is my God.


(1 Corinthians 2:14, John 16:13, Psalm 46:10, Philippians 1:6, Ephesians 2:10, Hebrews 12:2, Ephesians 4:23-24, John 14:9, 2 Corinthians 4:6)
