• “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Assurance – God Calling 09/16

And the work of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. – Isaiah 32:17

My Peace it is which gives quietness and assurance forever.  My Peace that flows as some calm river through the dry land of life.  That causes the trees and flowers of life to spring forth and to yield abundantly.

Success is the result of work done in peace.  Only so can work yield its increase. Let there be no hurry in your plans.  You live not in time but in Eternity.  It is in the Unseen that your life-future is being planned.

Abide in Me, and I in you so shall you bring forth much fruit.  Be calm, assured, at rest.  Love, not rush.  Peace, not unrest. Nothing fitful.  All effectual.  Sown in Prayer, watered by Trust, bearing flower and fruit in Joy.  I love you.

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.  -Hebrews 4:10

    His Peace certainly does pass all our understanding. And assurance (or confidence) comes as we stand firm in the Peace, no matter what storm rages about us. Reminds me of that old Faber hymn, "In heavenly love abiding, no change our hearts shall fear; and safe is such confiding, for nothing changes here. The storm may roar without us, our hearts may low be laid; But God is round about us, we cannot be dismayed."
