Withdrawing from the fierce competition of comparing ourselves to others is partly what enables us to rest. When the psalmist says, “Lord, my heart is meek before you. I don’t consider myself better than others,” (Psalm 131:1 TPT) they rest in humility.
Resting in humility looks like trusting who God made us to be. We don’t need to compete or earn our place in His presence, He’s already prepared a place for those who love Him. We are at home with Him, and He gives us all we need to thrive in the position He has called us to.
This week, read Psalm 131 and reflect on this prayer:
Father, I do not need to look to the left or the right. I look into your eyes. Help me to rest in the understanding of who you have made me to be.
