A Humble Faith

My 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.
But I have stilled and quieted my soul;
like a weaned child with its mother,
like a weaned child is my soul within me.
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD
both now and forevermore.
Psalm 131:1-3

Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord,
for all of them will hear your words.
Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways,
for the glory of the Lord is very great.
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble,
but he keeps his distance from the proud.
Psalm 138:4-6

The Lord takes delight in His people;
He crowns the humble with salvation.
Psalm 149:4

O Lord, give me a humble heart. I definitely have the tendency to be proud. help me to maintain a humble spirit. I want to remember how great You are and how little I am. I want a still and quiet soul. I want to be humble so that You will be near to me. I need You, O God, to be near to me. Help me to rest in You! Help me to not worry about what might happen, but trust in YOU. Amen
