“Behold, a king will reign righteously … And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.”
Isaiah 32:1, 17 (NASB)
It’s only in the quietness of soul … in the peace, in the rest … that perspective is rightly restored to full confidence in Him.
Because when my mind is working on overdrive, when I’ve got a tight grip on my own future plans, when I don’t make the effort to stop and spend time with Him, when I let go of the quiet, I believe the lie that I can do this on my own.
But in the quiet, I recognize my desperate need for Him. For His direction. For His peace. For His presence.
And from that place, I lean into Him. I trust Him. I depend on Him in full confidence. Because He is. And He always will be.
This quiet confidence … this life … it’s not about trying harder. It’s about resting more.
