I found this Psalm last summer while in the middle of changing a flower pot. I was in the kitchen and my Bible CD was playing in the background. I've heard it before, but oftentimes, depending on where we are in our lives and our walks, Scriptures and Psalms have different meanings. I was "in a place in my life" where I really needed Psalm 131:1-2.
The below is an excerpt from one of my New Bibles referencing Psalm 131.
"The Poet no longer felt torn apart by inner nagging and turmoil. He had come to terms with himself and thus experienced inner peace. The psalmist used a metaphor easily understood by mothers to describe his new found serenity. A child that is weaned no longer struggles for milk when held on its mother's breast...
The psalmist advised Israel to trust in the Lord and not to depend on themselves. Only then would God's people know true serenity, security, and contentment."
