Isaiah 30:15 says, “In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.”

 

It is always weakness to be fretting and worrying, questioning and mis-trusting. What can we do if we wear ourselves to skin and bone? Can we gain anything by fearing and fuming? Do we not tie ourselves up with fret and worry? Why do we sink by our struggles when we should be floating by our faith?

 

Oh, for grace to be quiet. Why run from house to house to repeat the weary story which makes us more and more heartsick? Why stay at home and live in agony? It would do us all well to keep a quiet tongue, but even more so to have a quiet heart. Oh be still and know that Jehovah is God.

 

Oh, for grace to be confident in God! The Holy One of Israel will defend and deliver His own. Surely every work of His will stand, though the mountains will depart, His word will stand forever. Come my soul, lean your head upon the bosom of the Lord Jesus. Rest surely in the year to come.

 

 

Ride on Friend,
