In Quietness and Trust

"in quietness and in trust shall be your strength" Isaiah 30:15 English Standard Version

Yesterday started well and we were looking forward to the day. However, all of a sudden, things began to take a downward turn.

I discovered there was a problem with our car and couldn't see how it could be fixed. Then, when trying to complete an important form, I couldn't find the necessary document to accompany it. I wasn't sure whether I had mislaid it, never received it, or it was lost in the post. All this started to wind me up and I became agitated. After frantic searching and several phone calls, I was no further forward. I even thought of accusing my wife.

Thankfully, I came to my senses and realised what was going on. While I was ignoring God in all this, the Enemy was taking advantage of the situation. He was trying to destroy my peace and even drive a wedge between my wife and I. After repenting of my attitude, I did what I should have done at the start. I handed everything over to God. After all, I wasn't getting anywhere trying to do it my way.

Not surprisingly, without having to change our plans, the car was repaired, and without charge. The document, which had been delayed in the post, arrived later.

When we go about our day, looking to God and resting in Him, we can have complete confidence, that He has everything in hand.
