How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
Quietness is such a blessing. I often have grandkids several times a week. I love them dearly, but when they go home, the quietness is wonderful! Daily I should quiet my heart before God and rest in the fact that I have confidence in Him and His strength. Isn’t it nice to know that I can just Be Still and know that God is God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. In the midst of turmoils and trials and I can have relax in the hand of almighty God and let Him take care of everything. Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
- Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.
Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
Blest assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
And the billows cease to roll.
- Everything is turned to gladness,
All around this glorious Guest;
Banished unbelief and sadness,
All is perfect peace and rest.
- Like the rain that falls from heaven,
Like the sunlight from the sky,
So the Holy Spirit given,
Falls upon us from on high.
- What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What a peaceful habitation!
What a quiet resting-place!
