Nourishing the Contentment of Our Souls

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. (Psalm 131:1-2 ESV)

All the details of God’s big picture go way beyond our understanding. Our attempts to figure out how and why things happen can become an unhealthy focus, taking us away from things that matter most.

Time is our most precious asset and we need not waste it in our own stubbornness. He does not owe us an explanation. The Bible says that the “secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us…that we may do all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

When the Lord wants to reveal something, he will do it just like he gave Joseph the exact interpretation of dreams (Genesis 40). God has given us plenty of instruction in Scripture and we are to master them if we want to grow. A lifetime of learning is his will for us, so we might as well embrace the daily process of maturing.

Blessings are sure to follow with our rewards ready to be claimed in Heaven. Select one verse or lesson from Scripture and apply it. And when you think you have it down, teach it. Let God’s word enrich you are so that it expand’s the room in your heart to receive more. The contentment of our souls begins when we are satisfied with what God has given us today.
