Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." (Proverbs 16:7) This verse makes me think of David. He was a young musician tending his father's sheep. He was a self-taught musician. He didn't go out on tour trying to make a name for himself. He just sang to the sheep. He had no idea that one day his songs would find their way into the psalter or be the very songs that comfort & inspire so many people. David did not seek success. He simply humbled himself under the mighty hand of God. He stayed close to the Lord, submitting himself to Him. God exalted David to the highest position in the land. You don't have to promote yourself -- God will promote you. Let God do the exalting. In the meantime, sit quietly under His hand!
