For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”
– Isaiah 30:15 (ESV)
Returning to Christ, to His word and His promises, and following Him.
Resting in Him in the midst of uncertainty and unknown.
Quieting our souls in the hope and assurance of His presence.
Trusting in Him and His perfect plan.
As we return to Him, too often with hands firmly grasping our own ideas and plans for the future, as we desperately pray that we would have a willingness to release that false sense of control and rest in His plan instead of our own, He meets us there in our need and in our weakness. He softens our hearts, quiets our souls, loosens our grip, and restores our mind to a place of trust and confidence in Him alone.
