Quiet in His Presence
May we seek the comfort of the "everlasting arms", He is our comfort, and we need to become quiet in His presence. Prov 17:1
1 Better is a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife.
6 Better a handful with quietness than both hands full, together with toil and grasping for the wind.
26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
II Th 3:12
12 Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
16 A little that a righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a fatted calf with hatred.
15 And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."
2 Chr 20:17
17 'You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you."
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope.
15 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,
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in the LORD forever, for in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
17 The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.
18 My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,
19 Though hail comes down on the forest, and the city is brought low in humiliation.
20 Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out freely the feet of the ox and the donkey.
37 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!
14 Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!
2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forever.
2 O LORD, be gracious to us; we have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.
31 But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
25 To God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.
