Quietness and Trust

WOW! Talk about something powerful deposited within my spirit today!

Isaiah 30:15b “…in repentance and rest you shall be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength…” NASB

In this passage Judah was warned against forming an alliance with the Egyptians, yet they refused to listen. They decided they wanted to do things their own way, and their disobedience caused them much heartache. They simply were not willing to be still, place their confidence in the Lord and see His mighty deliverance.

But that is not what hit me. What got me was going back into the original Hebrew text for “quietness” and “trust” . . .

Quietness – Strongs # 8252 – Shaqat (shaw-kat‘) “a verb meaning to be still, to be quiet, to be undisturbed. The primary meaning of this verb is the state or condition of tranquility…It signifies…a sense of safety and security (emphasis, mine).”

Trust – Strongs # 985 – bitcha (bit-khaw’) “a feminine noun meaning trust, confidence…this confident trust would bring divine strength and salvation” – amazingly, this was only used in this verse, and it was used to “emphasise Isaiah’s theology: true belief in God should be exhibited by implicit trust (confidence) in Him”

Most of us are not facing this type of governmental circumstance, however, we ARE children of God and we DO have to make choices whether or not to be obedient to Holy Spirit’s prompting us, resting and trusting in Him with complete confidence in the very circumstances that we are facing. My questions to you (and myself) after studying these words this morning are:

    Am I being quiet before Him?
    Am I listening to His Word, His leading?
    Am I trusting in Him, with complete confidence in Him?

According to “Isaiah’s theology”, anything less is inappropriate for me if I truly consider myself a Child of God . . . and . . . I DO!

Abba Father, thank You for revealing more of Your Truth into my spirit this morning. Thank You for all the many examples from times past of Your greatness, Your protection, Your provision in my life. Help me, Holy Spirit, to be obedient to Your Word, and with quietness and confident trust in You, My Lord God, and through the power of Your Blood, Jesus, stand firm and rest in Your amazing deliverance in every circumstance I face. Amen and amen.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
