The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.
Exodus 14:14 (AMP)
There is an awe and a peace in just being.
Not trying to be but just being. Surrendering and trusting God to bring about death to the flesh. That I may truly live.
Wow, I have so far to go and so much to learn but I think that I may be catching on. Everything that must be done in me spiritually must be done by His hand. His yoke is easy and His burden is so light. The hardest part to me seems to be in me just waiting. And while I wait not to struggle with myself but wait and keep waiting and all the while with closed lips looking to Him. Though it is hard not to put my own impetuousness into what He is doing by His grace I’m learning. “Learning!”,I said.
FOR GOD alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation, my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be greatly moved.
How long will you set upon a man that you may slay him, all of you, like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
They only consult to cast him down from his height [to dishonor him]; they delight in lies. They bless with their mouths, but they curse inwardly. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.
With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!
Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
Men of low degree [in the social scale] are emptiness (futility, a breath) and men of high degree [in the same scale] are a lie and a delusion. In the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.
Trust not in and rely confidently not on extortion and oppression, and do not vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
God has spoken once, twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God.
Also to You, O Lord, belong mercy and loving-kindness, for You render to every man according to his work. –Psalm 62
