April 28th "Jesus Calling"
Sunday, April 28, 2013
Another fabulous devotional from Sarah Young in "Jesus Calling" - then again, I haven't found a bad one in nearly a year's reading. : ) Remember, this book of devotionals is written as if Jesus is talking to you.

As you look into the day that stretches out before you, you see many choice points along the way. The myriad possibilities these choices present can confuse you. Draw your mind back to the threshold of this day, where I stand beside you, lovingly preparing you for what is ahead.
You must make your choices one at a time, since each is contingent upon the decision that precedes it. Instead of trying to create a mental map of your path through this day, focus on My loving Presence with you. I will equip you as you go, so that you can handle whatever comes your way. Trust Me to supply what you need when you need it.
The following verses are from the NIV Bible:
"Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.' The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord."
"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who take refuge in him."
