Calm, Quiet, and Content

S. O. A. P.

Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 131:2

But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

O-bservation:

King David boldly stated … “I have calmed myself. I have shut the noise from my head and mouth completely out in order to be and sense personal contentment. Just like a weaned child with its mother, I’m at peace and contented.”

A-pplication:

God’s desire for you and me today is that we allow Him to fill us with His Power. Not our power, but His Divine Power. When we operate in God’s divine power (Acts 1:8), we now are able to take command of emotions that are otherwise unruly and/or unpredictable. And when we take command of unruly emotions, by the grace of God almighty we can lay them down and elevate in their place the emotion called … “CONTENTMENT.” When the roof that covers the house of your own personal existence is “CONTENTMENT” … then words like “Calm” and “Quiet” will now be used to describe who YOU are. This is not to suggest that a person who is known by such words is a “Wallflower” by any means. It simply means that the divine power we possess has enabled us to be “Calm,” “Quiet,” and “Content.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

I thank You for Your divine power that is in me today. Because of this, I have calmed and quieted myself. And yes, even I am amazed and so content. Amen
