Psalms 131:1b-2 says, “Neither do I concern myself with great matters, Nor with things too profound for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
Our part is to fully trust the LORD, knowing He will do what He said He would do. We need to have a “calmed and quieted” soul; it isn’t our job to figure out how He does everything or how He is going to work things out. He has given us peace; this is the ability to be relaxed in our heart, knowing He will perfect what concerns us (see Psalm 138:8). David writes on some of these same themes in Psalms 139. In verse 6 he says, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.” He was referring to the greatness of God’s knowledge of him. We know God is all powerful and all knowing, but how well do we know it? David said, “Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well” (Psalm 139:14).

Psalms 138:2 says, “I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.”
God has magnified His Word above His Name. If you want to know God, know His Word; His character is always submitted to His Word.
