A song of ascents. Of David.1 My heart is not proud, O LORD,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me. 2 But I have stilled and quieted my soul;
like a weaned child with its mother,
like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD
both now and forevermore.
Here’s Anti-Psalm 131 (by David Powlison)
my heart is proud (I’m absorbed in myself),So of course I’m noisy and restless inside, it comes naturally,
and my eyes are haughty (I look down on other people),
and I chase after things too great and too difficult for me.
like a hungry infant fussing on his mother’s lap,
like a hungry infant, I’m restless with my demands and worries.
I scatter my hopes onto anything and everybody all the time"
I find myself more in the "anti-psalm" than in Psalm 131. I am praying, trusting, hoping and learning to REST in the Lord and leave "things too great for me" in His hands!
