Luther: the right shape

Thursday, May 17, 2018
    Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
    —Psalms 37:7 (KJV)
    Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for Him. In Hebrew, “Be silent in God, and let Him mould thee.” Keep still, and He will mould thee to the right shape.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), Watchwords for the Warfare of Life, Elizabeth Rundle Charles, ed., New York: M. W. Dodd, 1869, p. 249 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 37:7; Ps. 46:10; Isa. 64:8; Hab. 2:20; Rom. 9:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I receive my shape from You.
