These verses I read one morning not long ago in Daily Light for the Daily Path. You may recognize the title of this devotional book…it is a categorical compilation of verses, put together in daily readings. It was a favorite resource of missionary Amy Carmichael. Sometimes it is nice and helpful to have ideas huddled together like this:
“Wait, my daughter.”
“Be careful, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint.”—“Be still, and know that I am God.”—“Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”—The haughtiness of man shall be humbled, and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low, and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
Mary . . . sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. . . . “Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”—“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”—Ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. His heart is steady.—“Whoever believes will not be in haste.”
