Have you traded in your peace for a life full of stress, worry, and anxiety? David Powlison points all who are stressed out to Psalm 131, a quiet little psalm with revolutionary potential. The psalmist’s composure in the midst of his difficult circumstances is learned, Powlison explains, which means that you can learn it too. Powlison teaches us to abandon our restless, fretful, and irritable ways by believing the promises of God. Helping us personalize Psalm 131 to our own stressful situations, Powlison equips those who are anxious to find true and lasting peace by hoping in Christ.
