JESUS CALLING

Saturday, February 16, 2013

COME TO ME WITH ALL YOUR WEAKNESSES; PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL. REST IN THE COMFORT OF MY PRESENCE, REMEMBERING THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH ME.

PRY YOUR MIND AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS SO YOU CAN FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON ME. RECALL THAT I AM ABLE TO DO IMMEASURABLY MORE THAN ALL YOU ASK OR IMAGINE. INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DIRECT ME TO DO AND THAT, SEEK TO ATTUNE YOURSELF TO WHAT I AM ALREADY DOING.

WHEN ANXIETY ATTEMPTS TO WEDGE ITS WAY INTO YOUR THOUGHTS, REMIND YOURSELF THAT I AM YOUR SHEPHERD. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT I AM TAKING CARE OF YOU; THEREFORE, YOU NEEDN'T BE AFRAID OF ANYTHING. RATHER THAN TRYING TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER YOUR LIFE, ABANDON YOURSELF TO MY WILL. THOUGH THIS MAY FEEL FRIGHTENING---EVEN DANGEROUS, THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE IS IN MY WILL.

FOR NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. LUKE 1:37

NOW TO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO DO IMMEASURABLY MORE THAN ALL WE ASK OR IMAGINE, ACCORDING TO HIS POWER THAT IS AT WORK WITHIN US, TO HIM BE GLORY IN THE CHURCH AND IN CHRIST JESUS THROUGHOUT ALL GENERATIONS, FOR EVER AND EVER! AMEN.

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT BE IN WANT. HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN IN GREEN PASTURES, HE LEADS ME BESIDE QUIET WATERS, HE RESTORES MY SOUL. HE GUIDES ME IN PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME SAKE. EVEN THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL, FOR YOU ARE WITH ME; YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF, THEY COMFORT ME. PSALM 23:1-4

This week I have been going through some problems and situations that were beyond my being able to handle and change them. This lesson came in just at the right time to remind me to give this situation over to God since all things are possible through Him. I started to feel better today realizing that, greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world. Thank you Lord for your reminder of your great strength and power over my problem. Amen

I wanted to share this with my friends, in case anyone else is facing a problem that seems impossible to deal with.

God Bless everyone,
Joanie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "Remarkably" it was just in time for me this evening too. (But we know there are no "coincidences" with God, don't we.) emoticon

    We have been searching for a newer truck for so long now, and today we found one. However it was more than we wanted to pay for a truck. yet it was such a good deal, and I had prayed for guidance over and over. We bought it - and by the time we got groceries too, we were tired - and there was no elation or joy as we drove home. No thanks be to God, either! Instead we gave in to anxiety.

    For shame on us! Don't we know that God is FOR us, and that He wants what is best for us? Why did we doubt the purchase rather than rejoice in His provision?

    We will pick the newer truck (2011) up on Monday, Lord willing, when we return with our old clunker (trade-in allowance was given for it. (a 1995 truck) I am determined I will praise and thank God tonight and all day tomorrow and on Monday as we go finalize the deal, trusting in Him that we will get many years of use from it, rather than second-guessing the deal any longer. I am thanking and praising God for this wonderful new truck, and shall not doubt for a second longer.

    Whatever happens, God works all things for our GOOD! Rom. 8:28

    So thanks again for posting on how the Lord is our (good) shepherd, and in all our trials or doubtful situations, we ought always to trust Him.

    Our Lord God, who rescues us from anxiety and burden, who leads us through the valley and carries us to mountain heights, we thank and praise You for relieving Joan of burdens this day. In Christ's name we rejoice. Amen
