Psalms 131:1-3 (KJV)
LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
The happiest people before the Lord are the most humble. This Psalm, ascribed to David, is powerful in that it seeks no power. It is simply a declaration of humility:
- He had no ambitions in his heart
- He sought no positions of elevation
- He attempt no great deed
And yet, we know God used him in great ways.
He had quieted and contented himself. He had separated himself from dependence upon others.
His only hope, and that hope he sought for Israel, was the Lord.
