Jesus Calling #6
Immediately when I read this devotional from Jesus Calling, I thought of my recent post related to God’s sovereignty over everything in our lives. I highly recommend this devotional if you don’t already have it. It’s spoken from Jesus’ perspective to us. The devotional below is a great reminder to give God all of our concerns because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:6-7).
In order to hear My voice, you must release all your worries into My care. Entrust to Me everything that concerns you. This clears the way for you to seek My Face unhindered. Let Me free you from fear that is hiding deep inside you. Sit quietly in my Presence allowing My Light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you. Accept each day just as it comes to you, remember that I am sovereign over your life. Rejoice in this day that I have made (Psalm 118:24), trusting that I am abundantly present in it. Instead of regretting or resenting the way things are, thank Me in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Trust Me and don’t be fearful; thank Me and rest in My sovereignty.
