DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2020

But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
    like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child is my soul within me.—Ps. 131:2.

“David purposes to be stilled and quieted before God. He is not giving God the solution to his problems but is waiting for him to speak. David describes what this humble faith within him looks like. It is like a weaned child, possibly about four or five years old, who walks beside his mother, old enough to be weaned off his mother’s breast but not yet old enough to care for himself, trusting his parent for everything. This is to be the position of the believer, quietly submissive and trusting in God.” – Steven Lawson
