Jesus Calling #5
Here is another great devotional written from Jesus’ perspective to us from the book, Jesus Calling. It’s exactly what I needed to read!
You will not find My peace by engaging in excessive planning attempting to control what will happen to you in the future. That is a commonly practiced form of unbelief. When your mind spins with multiple plans, peace may sometimes seem to be within your grasp; yet it always eludes you. Just when you think you have prepared for all possibilities, something unexpected pops up and thors things into confusion.
I did not design the human mind to figure out the future. That is beyond your capability. I crafted your mind for continual communication with Me. Bring Me all your needs, your hopes and fears. Commit everything into My care. Turn from the path of planning to the path of peace.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. – Proverbs 16:9
Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. – Psalm 37:5
