Isaiah 41:10, For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
There are times in your life when you just need to step back and allow God to fight for you. It is human nature to want to defend and fight, but make sure if you do, that, that is what God is moving you to do, not just you. Sometimes remaining silent so God can move is the most difficult thing to do and yet who do you think will be better at handling your situation ~ you or God? He loves you and He’s got this! Trust Him!
We don’t understand a lot that goes on in life and some things we won’t have answers for until we are in Heaven and that is where resting in Him and trusting Him is vital. We just cannot control everything that happens in life so we must learn to allow God to be God in our lives. God is not just someone to pull out in hard times it takes walking with Him every single day in order to get through the tough times, heartache, and fire. He wants to be your strength and a lot of times that will take your being silent and walking in His strength knowing that He sees, He knows the truth, and He will bring you out better for it if you are walking with Him.
The world is pushing for people to feel weak and unable to help themselves but as Christians, we know that is never the case if we are walking with Him. Hold on to Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Choose to ask Him for His strength and confidence in everything in life. Don’t just wait until something bad happens. He is your God and He wants a personal relationship with you! Seek Him with your whole heart and you will find Him and His peace, strength, and confidence. Allow Him to work in and through you, so you can know that truly, yes somehow, His best is yet to come! You are not alone!
