“For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:” (Isaiah 30: 15)
Our salvation is easier than we may think. It is not about striving and reaching and running in search of something elusive or difficult to understand or arrive at. The Holy One, our loving God, has told us in this passage just how to find our salvation, our harmony, our peace, our safety.
It is by coming home to divine Love, to the Truth of our lives as the children of God. As we give up the sense of personal achievement, intellectualism, success based on will and luck, we discover our true power. As we relinquish personal control, we find our heaven, ready to welcome us in.
It is in a quiet confidence in God—as the Father and Mother of us and of our lives—that we discover real peace and the strength that can truly succeed, and which can also graciously share of that richness with others. It is not by becoming someone and something or by human actions that we are saved. It is by settling in to who we already are, who God made us to be. It is by returning to ourselves as the beloved, worthy, wonderful children of God and both the object and the evidence of His faithful and mighty Love.
