Quiet Confidence

The Watered Soul: Quiet Confidence

May 17, 2010

Quiet Confidence

In Saturday’s post I shared how I was reflecting on Isaiah 30:15, particularly the part about in quietness and confidence is my strength. Today, I wanted to share some questions and insights I received while continuing to meditate.

What is it that one needs to have confidence in?
  • That God exists
  • That God is who He says He is
  • That He can do what He says He can
  • That not only can He do it but He’s willing ( this is important because a person may have the ability to do a thing but has no desire or willingness to do so)
  • That God is concerned about you (yep, the same God that holds the universe together is interested in you)
  • That He is able to hold things together even when it appears that things are falling apart
When do I need to exhibit quietness?
  • When tempted to continue to argue your point, choose quietness instead.
  • When you would worry and be stressed out, quiet your mind instead.
  • When you be tempted to run and hide, quiet your steps and be still instead.
  • When it would be easy to complain, quiet the dis-ease with thanksgiving and praise.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! PEACE...BE STILL! So timely in all the chaos. God is speaking, in that still, small voice, to those who choose to listen.

Blessings, Wanda!

I'm working on developing more quietness and confidence quite a bit these days. :)

Glad you like the scripture tags!

Enjoy your week!

Such great words of advice. It's like the admonition always given to writers: "Show, don't tell."

Likewise, don't brag about what you can do, just quietly do it and speak through your actions. Or don't preach to me about what God's going to do to me, but show me how God works through you by your actions.
