Psalms 131:1-3

1My heart is not proud, O LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. 2But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. 3O Israel, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore.

When the angel Gabriel told Mary "You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus",

Mary asked the angel (Luke 1:34),

(NIV) "How will this be, since I am a virgin?

(KJV) "How shall this be, seeing I know not

a man?"

slide10
We need to know God,

not only know about God.

  • Punished harshly
  • Thorough repent

david describes god as shepherd psalms 23 1 6
David describes God as shepherd.(Psalms 23:1-6)

1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name\'s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

jesus said i am the good shepherd
Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd.”

GOOD SHEPHERD

• calls his own sheep by name (John 10:3)

• when he goes on ahead of them, his sheep follow him because they know his voice (10:4)

• lays down his life for the sheep (10:11)

david also says god is like the mother of a weaned child psalm 131
David also says "God is like the mother of a weaned child." (Psalm 131)

1My heart is not proud, O LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. 2But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. 3O Israel, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore.

we often say god is changeless
We often say God is changeless.

However,

In the bible, we can find that God changes his plan sometimes.

in the book of jonah
In the book of Jonah,
  • God planned to destroy Nineveh because its wickedness came up to him.
  • But when they turned from their evil ways He did not destroy them.
jonah was displeased and angry and said to god jonah 4 2
Jonah was displeased and angry, and said to God (Jonah 4:2),

“I knew that you are

  • a gracious
  • and compassionate God,
  • slow to anger
  • and abounding in love,
  • a God who relents from sending calamity.”
slide21
God loves us so much

that he changes his plan.

slide22
Let\'s have our soul stilled and quieted with our Lord, like a weaned child with its mother. – calm and peaceful

Let\'s make David\'s psalm ours.

do you feel like you don t deserve god s love because you have sinned
Do you feel like you don\'t deserve God\'s love because you have sinned?

Satan says to us,

"You are so sinful. How dare you become God\'s children? How dare you say you are doing God\'s work?"

our father in heaven says
Our Father in heaven says,

"I know you are sinners. I sent my Son, Jesus, to call you, sinners. Just come to me as you are. I will change you."

slide25
We don\'t have to be changed to become God\'s children. We become God\'s children first, then God will change us.

God so loves us

that He doesn\'t wait

until we change.
