Having a Steady Heart

His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his enemies. – Psalm 112:8 (ESV).

John Calvin writes regarding this verse: “Genuine stability is that which the prophet here describes, and which consists in reposing with unshaken confidence in God. A sense of calamities, while it alarms and disconcerts the faithful, does not make them faint-hearted, because it does not shake their faith, by which they are rendered bold and steadfast. In a word, they are not insensible to their trials, but the confidence which they place in God enables them to rise above all the cares of the present life. Thus they preserve calmness and composedness of mind, and wait patiently till the fit season arrives for taking vengeance upon the reprobate.”
