Confidence in God

And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. (John 4:51)

A nobleman approached Jesus, begging him to come to his home and save his dying child.

Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.”

So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.(John 4:50)

The man did not continue to insist Jesus come to his home; he simply & quietly obeyed Jesus.

It was a great act of faith for the man to turn and walk Almost a day and a half back to his home.

The man chose to rest in the word of Jesus that his child was healed and he could leave.

Confidence is a hard thing when we don’t know how our stories will end.

But, the peace and rest of God cannot be in us unless we get quiet and simply obey God before our outcomes.

Rest is a posture of the heart not the body.

I felt this devotion was worth sharing because  often times we struggle to rest in what God has said. I pray today you are encouraged to have confidence even when you don’t know how the story will end. Today, choose to get quiet and obey God before the outcome has arrived. Hebrews 10:23, Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised).

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
