Quiet Confidence

quietnessThis morning in my devotions the Lord said to forget the former things, he is doing a new thing.  He told me that something is over. Then he showed me a couples relationship unraveling because of deception.God said he is shattering an illusion.

Later on I got what seemed like confirmation of what God showed me. I responded to it, but I should not have because it just stressed me out, and truthfully annoyed me.

Right now, I am just going to be confident in what God said. When you are in a stressful situation, remember that quiet confidence is your strength.

New International Version (NIV)

15 This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:

“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.

A Word In Season

confusionI was just about to get really stressed about something when I pulled up the following word. Thank God for these devotionals…


Stay calm even when you are assaulted with confusion and chaos.  Be quiet and ask for wisdom, and I will show you how to deal with every situation.  This is momentary, and there is no need to allow unnecessary stress to hinder you or distort your perspective.  Be quiet, says the Lord, and let Me help you.

Psalms 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me.
