“In Quietness and in Trust Shall Be Your Strength”

I read the following the other day from Isaiah 30 and wondered how many times I am like a “stubborn child.”

“’Ah, stubborn children,’ declares the LORD, ‘who carry out a plan, but not mine…who set out…without asking for my direction…In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength…’”  (Isaiah 30:1a, 2a, 15b)

Sometimes I work really hard and fast, but seem to accomplish nothing.  These verses seem to indicate that doing God’s will is found in the opposite: returning to ask for direction, resting, being quiet, and trusting.  I feel more peaceful just thinking about it!
