For thus said the Lord God,
the Holy One of Israel:
By waiting and by calm you shall be saved,
in quiet and in trust shall be your strength.
Isaiah 30:15 NAB
How does waiting and being calm save us? When we think of saving someone, we might immediately think of big, heroic actions. The way God saves us may surprise us. He works in ways way beyond our understanding. Think of the times in your life when you have experienced God’s love and felt saved by him. There probably have been really difficult situations in your life that God helped you through. We need to remember and learn from these experiences. When we have a firm faith in God’s goodness, then waiting and being calm becomes a lot easier. Because we know that God will help us get through our difficulties just like he did in the past.
