If God feels distant

Friday, July 12, 2013

From "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young, a devotion written as if Jesus is speaking directly to us.

Friday, July 12th

"Whenever you feel distant from Me, whisper My Name in loving trust. This simple prayer can restore your awareness of My Presence.

"My Name is constantly abused in the world, where people use it as a curse word. This verbal assault reaches all the way to heaven; every word is heard and recorded. When you trustingly whisper My Name, My aching ears are soothed. The grating rancor of the world's blasphemies cannot complete with a trusting child's utterance: 'Jesus'. The power of My Name to bless both you and Me is beyond your understanding."

The following scriptures are taken from the NIV.

Acts 4:12 "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

John 16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete."
