"Let us now rest ! Psalm 131 This is for you"


Psalm 131

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

   Lord, my heart is not proud;
      my eyes are not haughty.
   I don’t concern myself with matters too great
      or too awesome for me to grasp.
  Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself,
      like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk.
      Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.

  O Israel, put your hope in the Lord
      now and always.

 

Dear Doves,

What a wonderful picture this is. Can you see it ? Baby is no longer fussing and crying.

Mother's milk has nourished the little one. Given her food to sustain and grow her until she is now fully

content and at rest. The little one is ready to enter into a new phase of life. She will begin to eat of the

fruits, meats, vegetables, and grains, that her maturing body was designed for. This is not only for sustenance,

but pleasure as well. God's intended purpose.

 

As watchmen and believers in Christ, we are being weaned as well. From the nourishment that is/was needed in this life

to what we will soon experience in eternity. It will be new,fresh,alive,and glorious. Yet, like a weaned baby, we will

forever rest  in the arms of Jesus. How faithful He has been to nourish us right to the end. Even when we were

fussing and crying, He has always been faithful to give us our nourishment. He has never withheld. So we can now assume

a posture of rest knowing He is coming o' so soon to take us home. Take some time to be still,unplug,and rest in Abba's

arms. We have done well.  We really have. We have been tried and tested and always come back to Jesus knowing there is

no other. There is nothing but love admiration for us from our Lord. The time has come. Enter His rest.

We will soon be home!
