30 DoW: Day 22

I chose Psalm 131
1
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
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.

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

3
O Israel, hope in the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

attribute & response:
Hope. I was drawn to this psalm because it talks about not being concerned with great things and being calmed and quiet. But that is because his hope was in the LORD. He trusted Him. I know many Christians who continue to express fear. But God says He has given us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. We don't overcome fear on our own. We get these things as we hope in the LORD. Thank you, LORD, for being our only Hope.
