Devotional for August 17

"In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength." Isaiah 30:15

QUIETNESS is expressive of submission to the holy will of God, and supposes a waiting upon Him as directed by His word. It is the believer's duty to be silent before God while He is working, being assured that his best interests are secured by the promises, and that all things will be made plain by-and-bye. He should confide in the Lord's word, and rely on the Lord's wisdom, love, and ability. Our confidence must arise from God's word, a review of His dealings with His people, and the relation in which He stands to us. We may be confident, for God, who has spoken is true, and hath confirmed His word in every generation. Quietly confiding in God will give us strength; we then put His love and faithfulness to the trial; we honour Him by our confidence, and He will honour us by appearing for us. Let us endeavour to be still, to be silent before Him, when He is raised up out of His holy habitation. Let us wait for Him, for it is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord. Beware of complaining or replying against God.

When, my Saviour, shall I be
Totally resign'd to Thee?
Poor and vile in my own eyes,
Only in Thy wisdom wise,
Only guided in Thy light,
Only mighty in Thy might!
