How can quietness and trust be equated to a forest? In finding peace, we have a confidence that justice and righteousness prevails. The wild wilderness can be tamed to a fruitful field when the principles of justice prevail. The fruitful field can morph into a beautiful cedar (or redwood) forest when right ways are nurtured. This can only be brought about by the Spirit of God working in and through our lives. Thank you, Father, for new life in Christ Jesus our Lord (See Romans 8).- Teresa
Isaiah 30: 15-17 (ESV)
15 until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field is deemed a forest.
16 Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,
and righteousness abide in the fruitful field.
17 And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust[g] forever.
