I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

February 16

THANK ME for the conditions that are requiring you to be still. Do not spoil these quiet hours by wishing them away, waiting impatiently to be active again. Some of the greatest works in My kingdom have been done from sickbeds and prison cells. Instead of resenting the limitations of a weakened body, search for My way in the midst of these very circumstances. Limitations can be liberating when your strongest desire is living close to Me.
Quietness and trust enhance your awareness of My Presence with you. Do not despise these simple ways of serving Me. Although you feel cut off from the activity of the world, your quiet trust makes a powerful statement in spiritual realms. My Strength and Power show themselves most effective in weakness.

   ”Be still before the Lords, all mankind, because he has roused
   himself from his holy dwelling.” ー Zechariah 2:17

   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 one of it.” ー Isaiah 30:15

   But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is
   enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the
   trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled
   and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness.
   Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities,
   that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may
   pich a tent over and dwell) upon me! ー 2 Corinthians 12:9
