Today’s Message on a Mug

Coffee in a Cup of Strength

There’s more to this message, however:

For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel,

“In returning and rest you shall be saved;

in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”

But you were unwilling. . . (ESV)

Rather than “returning,” the New International Version (NIV) uses “repentance.” Ellicott’s Commentary says this: “In returning and rest . . .—The words describe a process of conversion, but the nature of that conversion is determined by the context. In this case it was the turning from the trust in man, with all its restless excitement, to a trust in God, full of calmness and of peace.”

Before the strength of quietness and trust is attained, there is a turning from our battles, our sin, and a turning to the Creator of the Universe, in Whom we find forgiveness from our sin and rest from our own strivings and attainments.

L-RD Bless, Keep, Shine. . .
