The work of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17
Have you ever noticed when driving if you are doing the speed limit and obeying the road rules if you see a Police vehicle you feel at peace knowing that they are there to protect us from those who desire to do wrong, however if you are speeding you quickly check your speed, possibly brake to slow down, your heart rate goes up and you have a guilty feeling.
Isaiah is telling the people of Israel nearly 3000 years ago that if they follow God’s way and not their own, a sense of peace will reign. Isaiah is primarily prophesying of a time when Christ’s reign of true justice and righteousness will bring in a time of true peace.
Even today, Isaiah speaks into our time where anxiety is rife, reminding us that when we are doing God’s will and following His way then we will be at peace in our soul and spirit, we will have a quiet confidence that things will be okay regardless of the storm that may rage around us as God is there to protect us.
May your day be one of quiet confidence and peace of mind.
