Mustard Seed Daily DevotionKeeping Cool

In the Word

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him. Psalm 32:10

Of the Word

Who used a cabbage leaf to keep cool?
Babe Ruth

Babe Ruth wore a cabbage leaf under his baseball cap to keep cool. He even changed it several times during a game.

So what do you do to keep a cool head? How do you face the heat of the day? You probably will never use a cabbage leaf, but God does want us to keep a cool head in the midst of all we face. That is why He asks us to trust Him. After all, He took the real heat for us when He went to the cross to conquer sin, death, and Satan. Nothing could be worse than that!

Because we know He has won that victory for us, we can face our earthly woes in complete confidence as we remember God’s cooling, soothing words, Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him (Psalm 32:10).

Walking with my Lord

Lord God, when I am about to lose my temper, cool my emotions. Help me, Lord, keep a cool head, especially when stress and aggravation run high. Help me look to You to keep me calm. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
