Return + Rest = Confident Peace

The Lord keeps bringing this scripture to mind for me to think about. I thought you might enjoy thinking about it too.

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
But you would not. Isaiah 30:15

It really does “save” me (rescue me from stress and anxiety), whenever I remember to return and rest in Him. Rest that He has a plan that I cannot improve upon, that I don’t have to figure out, that I can trust Him to guide me and take care of everything that concerns me.

It really does give me strength to quiet my mind as I rest in Him. Trusting Him gives me confidence. When I’m worried about something, I tend to talk about it. When I’m trusting Him, I notice that both my mind and my mouth are quieter. That gives me peace and strength (conserves my emotional energy).

“But you would not.” – that tells me it doesn’t just magically happen. This is a choice I make. My will opens the doorway to this benefit of rest, confidence, peace and salvation from stress and worry.

Rest in God

This reminds me of quote I love:

“I dream of a people who know that their times are in the hands of their Lord.
They rest with confidence and full assurance knowing that He has laid a plan that they cannot improve upon and that He is directing their future.
So they rest in Him,
waiting for the sound of His voice
and doing with all their heart . . .
whatever is before them to do.”
– Don Nori, Love Shack

 

It’s important to know the sound of His voice – knowing when God is directing you. Do you know God’s voice? If not, there’s several posts on this site that can help you with that:

Let me know if you get any insight from this scripture. This was mine today. 🙂

    Amazing page. Maybe a bit odd question, but are you able to get in touch with the supernatural realm without worshipping a god? Any way we could talk privately if I’m not being too forward?

    • I’m glad you like this page. Yes, some people choose to get in touch with the supernatural realm without worshipping God. I don’t recommend it – there’s a lot of stuff out there that you don’t realize how much it can hurt you. You think you know what you are dealing with, but in reality it is not what it appears to be. You need a trustworthy guide – the safest one I know is Jesus Christ. When you open your heart to Him, it opens your eyes to the reality of Light and Darkness like you’ve never experienced before. Try it! He’s AMAZING and will always be with you. If you want to discuss this or anything else privately, my email address is in the Introduction. Thanks for commenting on this blog! 🙂
