April 6th – Psalm 131:1

Psalm 131:1

Psalm 131 is a little Psalm that packs a big punch. For in its few lines lies the secret to happiness, success and victory. The secret being humility and contentment. This is victory that I myself so desperately yearn for. Because like David, I too want to have a humble heart before the Lord. I too want to be content, happy, and thankful in all things, placing my complete trust in God alone. David’s message of humility and contentment is a big contradiction to a world that says more is better, and to value ourselves above all others. But as Christians we don’t live like the world. We live like our Lord. And no one exampled humility greater than Jesus. For as it says in Philippians 2:8, “And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!” If our Lord could let go of any pride, be content in all things, and trust God completely, so can we.
