“In Quietness and Trust Is Your Strength”

This morning one of my accountability buddies shared with me how Isaiah 30 has been meaningful to him. I read through the chapter during my noon prayer time. In the chapter God confronts Judah about striking an alliance with Egypt instead of trusting Him. The southern tribes of Israel seek the shelter of Egypt instead of the shelter of the Lord. Isaiah 30:15 really struck me, “For thus the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said, ‘In repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength.’ But you were not willing” (NASB). This picture of my bride on the back porch of a B & B on Ocracoke Island, NC (on the outer banks) reminds me of “quietness and trust.” So often I 10441186_660223247403796_7984297984857837673_ntend to think I need to immediately take action instead of immediately taking shelter in the Lord by coming to Him in prayer. Our deliverance comes in depending on Him. Lord, help me to rest in you through the remainder of this day and this week. You are the shelter of your people. You are the One upon whom I can depend and find rest.
