Settle – to make a final decision about (something)

go

Settle’
the word brings to mind this scripture.

1 Peter 5:10
But the God of all grace,
who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus,
after that ye have suffered a while,
make you perfect,
stablish,
strengthen,
settle you.

This scripture is my heart’s desire:
to be complete in God’s eyes
to be consistent and reliable
to be strong by confessing my weakness
and allowing God’s strength support me
to be firmly founded upon the Rock.

As Christ instructs, a wise man builds his house upon a rock.

stop

Settle you –
Cause all to rest so evenly
and firmly upon the best and surest foundation,
that ye may grow together to a holy temple in the Lord:
in a word,
that ye may be complete in all the mind that was in Christ;
supported in all your trials and difficulties;
strengthened to resist and overcome all your enemies;
and after all abide,
firmly founded,
in the truth of grace.
Clark’s Commentary
