Vs. 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.” This psalm is a of trust psalm written by King David and is the twelfth ascent psalm. Though David had the experiences in which he was prideful and arrogant…he learned how to be humble. It was about having the right perspective on life and not letting circumstances dictate how we respond. Some things in life are not meant to be conquered and understood.
Regarding application…Being Content. Vs. 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“ As we grow and mature in this life from experiences…we learn to be content. It’s kind of like driving…when we first start, we are very nervous and our parents are teaching us how to drive. In the midst of learning all the road rules and driving on the busy highways…we can get very nervous. But as we get more experienced…we learn to not only be content but enjoy the drive of life. We put our rest in knowing our final destination!
