O LORD, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty;
Nor do I involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too difficult for me.
Surely I have composed and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child rests against his mother,
My soul is like a weaned child within me.
O Israel, hope in the LORD
From this time forth and forever.
And my lesson for today? Verse two says, "Surely I have composed and quieted my soul..." Guess what??? That's an action! An act of the will, by God's grace and power.
