In Quietness & Trust

This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 (NIV)

If someone asked you to do them a favor, but they called you every five minutes to remind you to do it, could you say that person trusts you? Of course not. 

And yet, most of time, I convince myself that I “trust” God even though I remind Him of what I need every single time I get a chance. 

When you need strength, it’s natural to complain and be loud and whine and beg. 

But your strength comes in quietness and trust. 

Slow down. Breathe a little. Allow yourself to be still, to be quiet — and trust.

“Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10
