I just want to share to you some excerpts from the book, ‘Keep a Quiet Heart’ by Elisabeth Elliott – one of my favorite Christian authors. Be blessed!
What is the cause of our discontent?
We simply do not believe God. The wilderness experience leads to the Promised Land. It is the path God chose for us. His Word is established forever, and He tells us in a thousand ways that His will is our peace, His choices for us will lead to fulfillment and joy, the way of transgressors is hard.
The worst pains we experience are not those of the suffering itself but our stubborn resistance to it, our firm steady insistence on our independence.
Wait on the Lord for whatever He appoints, wait quietly, wait trustingly. He holds every minute of every hour of everyday of every week of every month of every year in His hands. Thank Him in advance for what the future holds, for He is already there.
