5/8/13 Jesus Calling

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

The following devotional is taken from "Jesus Calling" - a book written by Sarah Young, in such a way as if Jesus were talking to you.

"Do not long for the absence of problems in your life. That is an unrealistic goal, since in this world you will have trouble. You have an eternity of problem-free living reserved for you in heaven. Rejoice in that inheritance, which no one can take away from you, but do not seek your heaven on earth.

Begin each day anticipating problems, asking Me to equip you for whatever difficulties you will encounter. The best equipping is My living Presence, My hand that never lets go of yours. Discuss everything with Me. Take a lighthearted view of trouble, seeing it as a challenge that you and I together can handle. Remember that I am on your side, and I have overcome the world."

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Isaiah 41:13 "For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."

Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength."

    This is so true we will have problems daily but the only way to overcome them is to give them to God and then follow his directions for our life. emoticon

    emoticon Every little bit of love from a blog or a talk or a book all leads to us being better lovers of all. emoticon

    What a wonderful thought-not asking to avoid problems but for God to be there to see us thru them.

    Thanks Nancy for this devotion. Too many times I forget to talk to Him about everything. Even forgetting to ask Him to help me find something I misplaced. My daughter keeps telling me to ask Him to help me out.
