Today’s Promise: CONFIDENCE
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.
But you would not,” Isaiah 30:15 (NKJV)
“But you would not…”
Isn’t that a sad statement? Here the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, is telling Judah to return to Him and put their confidence in Him instead of in man [Egypt] but they “would not”.
“Woe to the rebellious children,” says the LORD, “Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin; Who walk to go down to Egypt, And have not asked My advice, Isaiah 30:1-2 (NKJV)
Confidence is trust, reliance, assurance, belief in something or someone.
We have a choice, just as Judah did. We can choose to put our confidence in the Lord or in man.
If we put our confidence in the Lord and live in obedience to Him, He promises to keep us safe and to give us His strength each day.
For, the Lord promises strength and protection to those who have confidence in Him.
Judah “would not”. They placed their confidence in man and ultimately found out they had made the wrong choice.
Let’s learn from their mistake and each day say: ” I will choose to put my confidence in the Lord and not in man.”
Your word says in Proverbs 3:26 that You are my confidence and You will keep my foot from being caught in a snare.
Lord, I want to place all my confidence in You each day.
I want You to strengthen and protect me.
I want to claim all these promises of Your word.
Help me to remember them and walk in them everyday.
Thank You Lord. Amen.
