I can’t seem to get this verse of Scripture out of my mind.
This is what the Almighty LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “You can be saved by returning to me. You can have rest. You can be strong by being quiet and by trusting me. But you don’t want that.” (Isaiah 30:15 GW)
Let’s seeeeeeee, salvation, rest, and strength……..But you don’t want that? Are you kidding me? It sounds like a good deal to me! Oh……. wait a minute, you mean I have to be quiet and trust You? Hmmm, better think about that one….
Folks, we need to get real with God today. Stop saying, “I will tend to that later,” because “later” is not guaranteed. Nowadays, many people don’t even know how to be quiet. They don’t know how to sit still and LISTEN to God. But I have found that when I am still and quiet that’s when I feel God’s salvation, rest, and strength the most. More of Him….. less of us, only then will we entrust every part of our life to Him that gave us life in the first place.
