I David’s confession
Matthew 11:25–26 (NKJV)
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.
26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.
Matthew 11:28–29 (NKJV)
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
II David’s confession of his journey of faith
Psalm 131:2 (NKJV)
2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.
Matthew 18:3 (NKJV)
3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
Philippians 4:11–12 (NKJV)
11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea-billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul.”Horatio G. Spafford
III David the preacher
Psalm 131:3 (NKJV)
