Lord, my heart is not haughty,
Nor my eyes lofty.
Neither do I concern myself with great matters,
Nor with things too profound for me.
Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul,
Like a weaned child with his mother;
Like a weaned child is my soul within me.
There is no gifting or calling of God, upon any man, which ever excludes him from the need to always dwell in such a humble posture of spirit before the Lord.
The only knowledge of “great matters” that is sanctified in the sight of God our Father is what may be acquired by incident of abiding in the comforts and disciplines of His counsel and leadings.
And if indeed they are so acquired, they still must be carried not in the burden of a proud mouth, but rather in the burden of a genuine intercession.
Yet much vanity, in the form of both good and ill omens, is gleaned by many among God’s people from the endless cacophony of the self-absorbed heralds of the devil’s agenda. Their god is truly the fear of this world and of its troubles; and only from these fears do they speak, even when speaking about the things of God.
They are quick to proclaim a word rather than to plead over it, thereby missing the entirety of its purpose. They are eager to see a word fulfilled before their eyes, that their own opinions about it may be vindicated. Therefore, many a word from their mouths is proven only half-true at best, yet onward they go, to be corrected by no man.
But God is doing a work that will leave them all confounded. He will not let His wisdom be mocked by the usurpations of the “prophets” of this generation, who have prophesied only according to what they have heard of one another.
Many are the voices who are sure in themselves, but few are those whose surety is of God alone. Many think themselves wise as serpents, but few are truly innocent as doves.
All will be revealed in due time.
It is the meek who shall inherit the earth.
