Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul like a weaned child with his mother. Like a weaned child is my soul within me. Psalm 131:2
If there was one phrase that Jesus seemed to say to the disciples it was “fear not”. He told them when he walked on water and when he walked out of the tomb. He told them when they faced the impossibility of death ams when he calmed the storm. Fear is our go to emotion in almost every crisis of life. But when you are afraid you will find that God continues to hold you just as the mother holds her son who is being weaned. He doesn’t know what is happening. Mother is no longer providing the familiar milk. He is afraid, yet all the time he crys she holds him till all fearfulness is gone. He relaxes and finally rests trusting that beyond his fear is the love of the one who holds him tight!
