I acknowledge this is lent 4 on the Christian Calendar – a gentle break in fasting.
The journey in the valley of the past few weeks for me has shifted something and I have asked that I may retain total surrender to God but still live and learn in the years ahead, more and more about Him. His Wisdom. His Spirit. His sacrifice and most of all about His Love and Grace. What if? questions have surfaced and been of great surprise. What if? Science cannot prove God but What if? the eternal Wisdom of the Spirit can bring even science to a full understanding that DIVINITY cannot be proven. Yet still IS. What if? What if???
I am supposed to be in a time of recovery, so really it was of no surprise that God in His Grace, reminded me very clearly of the following passage of scripture.
Isaiah: 30 v 15 In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.
I was reminded too of the verses surrounding and after this scripture. The children of Israel said, “No! we will flee from the enemies on our swiftest horses. God’s reply….“The enemy will therefore then pursue on swifter horses:
Confidence must therefore be firmly anchored in God....not in our own abilities.
May quietness and confidence be your strength during this coming week in and through all of life’s challenges.
