"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Jesus Calling ~April 23rd

KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME, not only for direction but also for empowerment.  I never lead you to do something without equipping you for the task.  That is why it’s so important to seek My will in everything you do.  There are many burned-out Christians who think more is always better, who deem it unspiritual to say no.

In order to know My will, you must spend time with Me--- enjoying My Presence.  This is not an onerous task but a delightful privilege.  I will show you the path of Life; in My Presence is fullness of Joy; at My right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

 

But my eyes are fixed on You, Sovereign LORD;
   in You I take refuge—do not give me over to death. ~Psalm 141:8

You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. ~Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)

My Thoughts:

‘He never lead you to do something without equipping you for the task!’  I really needed to hear that too.  I know He will never give us more than we can handle, its just our human nature to worry and get distracted.  I really need to take that time to be with Him, to learn to trust in Him more and to stop worrying and thinking I have control over my life.  It is all Him and He will show me the path of life that will lead to joy!

Jesus callingSo.. a friend of mine was/is doing a daily devotional called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I decided to head on over iTunes and see what they had since I had a gift card for iTunes. They had it so I got it. I really like it. The one I got is more like an app than the audible book but I still like it. I am sharing them with everyone because each day is such a wonderful reminder of His love for us!!!

I believe that God does give us more than we can handle in order for some of us, like me, to have to come to the end of our rope and turn finally to Him. This is not the same as temptations, in which He promises we will not be tempting past our resolve.
