Isaiah 30:15 ” This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.’ “

God really does know best, and always has our best interest in mind.  But we  sometimes think we know better.  Exodus 14:14 is an excellent example of what the Lord is trying to tell us in the verse…”The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Our strength is derived from hope and obedience, not sheer force and brute determination.
