Strength in quietness-4

Isaiah 30:15 “For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength…”
Almost immediately, he stopped falling as the rope held tight. He was a bit relieved and became calm. It was very dark and the wind was blowing hard against his face but just as in the case of Elijah, he heard a small still voice saying, “Let me help you”, he believed it was God and he replied “ok”.
The voice added, “Cut the rope”. At that moment he hissed and ignored the small still voice. He stopped being calm and started struggling with the rope, the voice kept wispering the same instruction but he refused, he switched over to the struggling and chaos mood.
In the morning, he was found dead hanging just four feet above the ground and on the ground a rescue team was waiting to help him! Sad, you would say but most people repeat this error on daily basis.
How do you live a God led life if you aren’t listening to what He has to say?
Austin Phelps wrote, “It has been said that no great work in literature or in science was ever wrought by a man who did not love solitude. We may lay it down as an elemental principle of religion, that no large growth in holiness was ever gained by one who did not take time to be often long alone with God.”
No wonder Jesus always withdraw to a quiet or solitary place, just to gain strength.
Mark 1:35 “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”
Jesus despite all the chaos in his days, he made out time to go to a solitary place to hear God and renew strength.
Jim Elliot said, “I think the devil has made it his business to monopolize on three elements: noise, hurry, crowds. Satan is quite aware of the power of silence.”
